Stuffed Animals

Handknit Organic Cotton Lanky Lion

Swahili Modern


  • These handcrafted African stuffed lions are knit from natural, organic cotton and are safe for children of any age. The animals feature easy-to-grab limbs, sewn facial features, and a scarf. Delightfully floppy and sumptuously soft, our Lankly Lion is the cuddly creature that your child wants to hold tight and play with.

    Made by Kenana Knitters, who are known for their high quality crafts. Measures 11"T x 2.5"L x 1.5"W. Some variation may occur due to the handmade nature of this item.

    Made from both AZO free dyes and natural plant dyes from plants grown in the area which add vibrant and colourful depth to designs.

  • "Changing Lives Stitch by Stitch," Kenana Knitters is a knitting cooperative in Njoro, Kenya that employs a community of women in a rural farming area. In addition to supplementing the womens' income, sales also fund community action for education and health services. All products are local and crafted from natural, organic materials.
