Our crocheted toys and ornaments are handmade in Armenia. This collective was started with seed funding from Save the Children to create jobs and help promote Armenian crafts. The project employs women who were previously without work in Armenia’s struggling economy. They enjoy a safe work environment and earn a living wage with a respect for their cultural traditions. Their expert artisanship can be seen in the quality of our products.
Stuffed In each one of these products, you can see a story: great design blended with artisan craftsmanship. But that’s not the whole story. It’s the commitment to upholding fair trade practices that make this collection stand apart.
In small workshops around the globe, skilled artisans bring these whimsical designs to life. They have been working the same artisan groups for over 10 years and have developed long-term, committed partnerships that help promote sustainable income, environmental awareness, and greater economic equality. They pay fair prices in the local context, offer fair credit terms and prompt payment; they promote safe and healthy workplaces and respect cultural diversity.
