Fair Trade Rattle – Petrol Blue Giraffe
Baby will love this cheerful blue giraffe rattle made from fabulous blue organic yarn. With its whimsical dots and funny face, it makes the perfect playmate! We like to think that toys made by Hathay Bunano spread smiles worldwide: the ladies who make them in Bangladesh smile because the toys bring them work, the parents smile because the toys keep their babies happy and enable them to shop with a conscience, and the babies smile – well you can see why! We hope you love this little rattle as much as we do.
We love the rattle’s workmanship. This is our small contribution to supporting families in rural Bangladesh, to removing the need for economic migration to the cities, and to providing women with flexible working opportunities which are close to their homes.

Meet the Artist: Hathay Bunano
Hathay Bunano, the maker of Pebble products, is a nonprofit fair trade organization in Bangladesh. Its mission is to create quality, flexible, local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged, and empower them to come out of poverty in sustainable fashion. Kahiniwalla was established in 2010 by Austin and Marita Miller. Upon his return from work as a product designer with Mennonite Central Committee's job creation program in Bangladesh, Austin wanted to continue helping to provide employment for the poor of Bangladesh and decided to do so by distributing their high quality handmade products in North America.
