What: These octopuses (octopi? octopodes?) have popped up from their watery wonderland to say hello. With eight arms they are huggable by design!
How: Hand crocheted in 100% cotton, the octopuses are 9cm tall and 9cm wide. Machine washable.
Who: Handmade in Bangladesh by a social enterprise offering rural women fair pay and flexible working hours.
Why: "Cheap" clothes and toys come at a price - and often the burden is on young children being forced to work long hours for low pay. Fair trade ensures that no child exploitation is involved in producing these beautiful items.
