This sweet hippo is a hand-knitted Shamwari (friend) from Africa.
Made in Zimbabwe, through a wonderful project that empowers local women, each shamwari is lovingly handmade and is as individual and cheerful as the lady who knitted it!
Colours and sizes vary for each item and may differ from the image. Height between 20 and 30 cm. Made from a mixture of wool, acrylic, polymid and polyester stuffing.
Each Shamwari comes with a personalised tag that tells you their name and who they were made by.
We are delighted that sales of these gorgeous knitted friends support women in Zimbabwe AND our brave and beautiful patients in Ethiopia.
