People Loving - Kenana Knitters follow fair trade guidelines & are committed to providing a safe working environment for their largely female workforce.
Handcrafted - Each Bundu (meaning bush) Lion is hand knitted & made from wool that has been handspun by a talented artisan in Kenya.
Planet Loving - The Bundu Lion is made using sustainably sourced wool & all natural dyes derived from local plants & flowers, eliminating the waste caused by processing. All wool is washed in rainwater captured from the roof of the workshop & stored in big tanks. Waste water from washing & dyeing the wool can be used to water the garden.
Cause Supporting - A portion of profits from each Bundu Lion goes toward running a monthly health clinic for the 580 plus staff of Kenana Knitters.
The Good Life - Regardless of whether it’s the little arms of someone you love or your own arms around a Kenana Knitters creation, it’s comforting knowing that everything about your Kenana critter is all-natural.
Locally Made - Kenana Knitters artisans are based in rural Kenya, Africa. By buying a Kenana Knitters product, you are helping to support artisans in your community.
Material: 100% locally farmed Kenyan wool.
Size: The Bundu animals range in height from approximately 18 - 24cm.
Country of Origin: Kenya
