Winter is well and truly here; the days are darker, and the temperature has dropped considerably. This time of the year is busy with Bonfire Night celebrations, lantern parades and visits to Christmas markets so the cold shouldn’t stop you and your Lovely Little People from venturing outdoors and having fun. Our fabulous new range of fair trade kids knitwear is sure to keep them warm whilst out and about this season.
This beautiful collection is fairly traded from Nepal and has been lovingly hand-crafted by home workers in local rural farming communities utilising traditional artisan skills. The knitwear is not factory made or mass-produced, each item has been made with a great deal of patience, love, and care. The knitwear production is village based with the knitters and artisans fitting knitwear production around their own family and work commitments. This additional work helps supplement their farming incomes, enabling them to stay within and support their local rural communities, rather than having to relocate to find jobs in the city. We are proud to support this work, by purchasing these products, we are helping keep families together by providing them with an additional income. The feltwork, hand finishing, and packing of the products are carried out by a small, family-run factory in Nepal who oversee all Piccalilly production.
Our hat and mittens collection includes a gorgeous Bumble Bee, a very cute Sheep as well as our popular Ginger Fox and Pink Bunny designs. We are also super excited to introduce our range of slippers. Made from felted wool, these beautiful slippers will keep Lovely Little Feet warm and toasty this winter.
