FAIR TRADE

All Pebble products are made by Hathay Bunano. Hathay Bunano, meaning hand made or hand knitted in Bangla, is a non-profit, fair trade organisation in Bangladesh. It's mission is to create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged.  Every sale of Pebble products is helping poor women in Bangladesh support their families and keep them together. 

Hathay Bunano now employ over 5,000 women in 52 different regions of Bangladesh, and handmade products are still at the core of the business. The employment is very much community based - rural jobs that are paid fairly and are flexible as well as being within a 5-10 minute walk from the women's' homes.

Hathay Bunano is delighted to have been awarded WFTO Guaranteed Fair Trade status. There are only 20 WFTO guaranteed members in the whole of Asia and the company is very proud to be one of those members.

The company that makes Pebble toys - Hathay Bunano - was started back in 2004 by Samantha Morshead MBE. On moving to Bangladesh she loved its vibrancy and energy but also saw that it was a place of incredible poverty. With a vision of bringing sustainable and flexible employment to rural and disadvantaged women, she started teaching them knitting and crocheting skills and Hathay Bunano was born.
