Crochet Pocket Mouse
Your very own pocket mouse available in red and white or black and white as shown. Approximately 9cm tall – the perfect size for peeping out of a pinafore or dungaree pocket or for making a matchbox bed!
Sourced from a Cape Town design-based fair trade initiative, which provides ongoing skills training to over 25 women members from Zimbabwe, Malawi, Congo and South Africa, the members of this cooperative are taught new skills and constantly upgrade their ability to meet increasingly ambitious projects.
They work in 100% cotton and linen, with unicurl natural filling and focus on providing lively contemporary design, which retains a strong African feel. Crochet is an extremely fine work, using the smallest hook and the group takes great pride in their skills, which are of a very high level – their work has travelled to some of the best design stores from Japan to Amsterdam and is now available for you exclusively in UK!
Known for their emphasis on interesting colour and pattern mixes, they obsessively invent new toys and animals from their project base in Hout Bay, where most of the craftswomen live in Imizamo Yethu informal settlement.
