Hand Crocheted Octopus Rattle
more items from this seller
gift wrapping available
These exceptionally cute octopus rattles are hand crocheted in rural Bangladesh by women working for a non-profit fair trade organisation.
The organisation helps keep families together by providing employment in a village setting close to the women's homes rather than in a city. Mothers are able to stay with their babies and children and earn money to support them.
Olive is pink, purple and orange and Oliver is blue, green and turquoise. They have huge eyes, a cheeky grin and eight legs (obviously) which are great for grabbing and chewing.
In choosing one of these rattles you are helping empower women to gain financial independence and support their families. One would make a lovely ethical gift for a baby girl or boy and would be perfect to take to a baby shower, naming ceremony, Christening or Baptism.
As these rattles are handmade you should not expect the one you receive to look exactly like the photograph. We think this adds to their charm and hope you do too.
If you want us to send direct to the recipient we offer gift wrapping in colourful paper and a hand written gift tag for £1.50.
100% cotton. Machine washable at 40 degrees and can be tumble dried on a low setting. Compliant with European safety standards and suitable from birth.
Approximately 11cm tall but as they are handmade sizes do vary.

Beautiful! Thank you so much. We live abroad so buying gifts that can be gift wrapped is a must. Our friends sent us a picture of how the rattle was wrapped as it was done so lovely and the rattle is a hit! Thanks again! :)
