Our artisan partners in Chiapas, Mexico create these masterpieces from scraps of wool. The wool is obtained within the artisan community from their own sheeps. It is then washed, carded, spinned and finally dyed. It's then hand woven in a back strap loom and cloth is made. The cloth is used for clothing for them and scraps are used to make the animals. The animal is shaped and hand sewn then stuffed to create each magical piece. All is done in the comfort of their own homes!

MY DAUGHTER HAD REQUESTED AN ELEPHANT STUFFED ANIMAL AND MY FIRST PLACE TO LOOK FOR ANYTHING IS AT LUMILY. I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE THAT THEY DID HAVE A ELEPHANT STUFFED ANIMAL THAT WAS FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED! WHEN IT ARRIVED MY DAUGHTER WAS SO EXCITED AT HOW COLORFUL IT WAS AND SHE SLEEPS WITH IT EVERY NIGHT!
