Handmade 100% Wool / Girafe / Mexican Folk Toy 

Color: Orange

Material

Wool

This gorgeous giraffe with a sweet embroidery has been made entirely by hand by a small group of female artisans in the central highlands of Chiapas, Mexico.

Originally wool animals were crafted by the women with the remnants of the cloths woven for the family and were given to the children as toys.

Nowadays Wool is obtained within the community from their own sheeps. The wool is washed, carded and spinned then it is dyed with artificial or natural dyes and hand woven in a back strap loom. After the cloth is made the animal is shaped, hand sewed and stuffed with wool.

Wool animals can be used as a toy or to add a bright touch to the decoration of a child's room.

Materials:
- 100% Natural Wool

Size: 5"H x 2"W x 8"D

*Each toy is unique and each purchase helps this group of artisans to make a sustainable living.
