All Kenana soft toys are hand made by the Kenana Knitters, a grassroots organisation based in Njoro, Kenya and was founded in 1998 by local Kenyan, Patricia Nightingale, who wanted to help local women who lacked a market for their homespun wool. Over time Patricia and the knitters have transformed their homespun wool and cotton into a fantastic range of unique and cuddly creations.

As well as teaching women in the area to knit beautiful products using local, sustainable resources and providing the women involved with a regular income, Kenana also provides a savings plan, daily newspaper, access to free electricity, and a monthly health clinic, including free eye checks and glasses.

Today, Kenana Knitters has over 500 knitters, and at least 200 spinners looking after the provision of homespun wool. Kenana exports around the world to Europe, UK, USA, Japan and now Australia (through Kenana Down Under). The Kenana Knitters are changing their lives, stitch by stitch.

By providing a safe, family-friendly working environment, Kenana Knitters is empowering women, offering them a chance to work and take charge of their lives, with pride and dignity.
