Hand knitted Shamwari (friend) from Africa.  Mama and bub are just too cute! Baby can be taken in and out of the sling for extra fun. 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!

As all soft toys are individually handmade, there may be some slight variation in size and colour.
