Toto Knits is a line of organic cotton knitwear ethically made by a group of single mothers in Kenya. The knitters are paid by the piece which allows them to work as much or as little as they like. Each piece is made by hand and signed by the knitter. They make some lovely children’s knitwear and I’ve picked out a few of my favourite pieces to share with you.
I do like this Bumble Bee Sweater particularly as it’s made from organic cotton and the colours were obtained from bio friendly dyes. It’s a fun stripey top with a hood and button fastenings at the front. I love the antennae that form part of the knitted hood. This would be a good top to wear to a fancy dress party too. There’s a great range of sizes too, so you can find a size to fit any child from newborn to 6 years old. I think it would make a lovely new baby gift, if you’re looking for a gift for a new arrival. It’s priced at $35.
How cute is this Tiger Cardigan? I love the bright orange and black tiger stripes and the tiger head hood, it’s even got ears and a nice long tail. Again it come in sizes from newborn to 6 years of age, is made from organic cotton and costs $35.
