About the Fair Trade Knitters of Peru:
These cute and colourful finger puppets are hand knitted by communities of Quechua women in Puno, Peru. These women are very skillful knitters and each one is specialised in several hand knitted puppets. Together they produce a vast array of animals and other characters that have surpassed the frontiers of Peru to reach children all over the world. When you purchase these fair trade puppets you are assisting these women who live in extreme poverty to support their own families and in turn their community.
Occasionally there are slight differences in the detailing of the puppets, for example the shape of the mouth or the colour of a puppets shirt or detailing on fur. This occurs as the knitters use the coloured wool available to them at the time of knitting.
