Once upon a time, a young woman from the UK fell in love with a young man from Bangladesh. Eventually they moved to Bangladesh and had a baby. As the new mother cuddled her tiny boy, she couldn't help but notice all of the young women streaming into the garment factories every morning.
She was deeply saddened when she discovered that many of these woman had babies back home in their villages, left for months at a time with grandparents while the mom worked in the city. Lack of rural employment for women was separating families and putting the mothers in harmful situations and the babies without their mothers.
She taught small groups of women how to knit and now more than 13,000 women are employed making Pebble toys in their home village. They walk to work, taking their babies with them. There they sit together, yarn spilling onto their laps as they knit community and love together in each heirloom Pebble toy. Pebble was born out of a love for babies and their mothers.
This plump orange stuffed giraffe is quite pleased with its playful yellow and green spots. Its dangly arms and legs, pointy ears, and light green ossicones make it easy for tiny hands to hold on to and play.
Lovingly handmade with soft cotton yarn, it is the perfect heirloom toy for your little one to cuddle.
