Founded in 1998 in Njoro, Kenya; Kenana Knitters was set up to to help rural women find some much needed form of income using their spinning and knitting skills. Kenana Knitters was founded on the premise of “changing lives stitch by stitch”.

The primary purpose of Kenana is to support women in the local community, by directly providing them with a source of income, thus enabling them to improve the quality of their own lives as well as those of their extended families. 

Each distinctive design is a hand-crafted Kenyan creation and bears the signature of the woman who made it.

PLEASE NOTE: Each toy is handmade using wool available at the time, therefore the colour of your toy may be slightly different to the picture shown.

This is for one finger puppet of your choosing, not the whole set.
