Pebble launched in January 2010 but Hathay Bunano, the non profit organisation making the Pebble products started way back in 2004.

Hathay Bunano, meaning hand made or hand knitted in Bangla, was started 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.

Hathay Bunano now employs 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.

100% organic cotton outer with polyester fill.

BRAND STORY

pebble

Pebble products are made by Hathay Bunano, a company started back in 2004 by Samantha Morshead MBE. On moving to Bangladesh, Samantha saw the incredible poverty so started teaching the women knitting and crocheting skills. Soon her vision of bringing sustainable and flexible employment to rural and disadvantaged women became real.

Fair Trade Certified

Following WFTO accrediation, Pebble is currently the only guaranteed fair trade crochet toys in the world. It now employs 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 - the women are paid fairly and the work is flexible - they enjoy getting together to work, chat and share.

Skilled Hands

It's lovely to see these women with incredibly skilled hands able to work close to their homes, keeping families together and preventing the need for economic relocation to the cities.

And when every piece is made by hand they are all unique, meaning no two pieces will be exactly the same - you could say each one is a work of art!
