This Wuaman Honeybee Finger Puppet makes a wonderful toy for kids and grown-ups alike. It was made in collaboration with Wuaman, a third-generation family business that started in 1999 in Peru and began in 2019 in Colorado.
Our collaboration with Wuaman employs more than 25 women from underdeveloped communities in the Andes Mountains of Peru. Wuaman hires women with zero experience and provides them with free training on crochet and kitwork. After training, Wuaman supplies the craftswomen with cotton yarn so they can handcraft the designs we have created together without any upfront cost. With the success of this collaboration, Wuaman was able to team up with nonprofit women's organizations in Peru to increase production and continue to help the underserved women there. We proudly offer our customers these machine-washable, 100% natural cotton toys and ornaments straight from women's hardworking hands in the Peruvian Andes.
Roughly 3" in length. Made from hypoallergenic yarn. Handwash.
