These crochet caterpillar rattles are designed round the idea of a rattle that you could both grab and chew at the same time. Made by women in rural areas of Bangladesh, providing good quality, secure, local and flexible employment. This is what Fair Trade is all about!
The ladies who hand-knit these snakes in rural Bangladesh are extremely talented and capable artisans. We love their workmanship. The ladies smile because the toys bring them work, the parents smile because the toys keep their babies happy and enable them to shop with a conscience and the babies smile – well you can see why!
Buying a Pebble toy is your small contribution to supporting families in rural Bangladesh, removing the need for economic migration to the cities and providing women with flexible working opportunities which are close to their homes. Pebble is part of a non-profit fair trade organisation in Bangladesh, whose mission is to create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged.
