Our eco-friendly, sustainably made, Tortoise finger puppet has been hand crafted by artisan collectives from the rural areas of the Peruvian high-plains. We source ethically, practice fair trade principles and strive to help these artisans extend their products reach. As descendants of the Incas, these artisans, mostly women, have been working with textiles for generations. Knitting is a proud tradition for the Quechua and Aymara people who still use traditional methods today. Most work from home using their passion and skills to create these colorful finger puppets which help supplement their family's income. Each finger puppet is as unique as the artist who created it! Some characters are only available in limited quantities and then never made again. Others are created by artisans from subsistence communities who only knit during certain periods of the year and produce small quantities of magnificent finger puppets. Our network of artisan-producers is comprised of over 800 talented individuals who are encouraged to use their creativity to the fullest! These toys are special, they are not made in a factory, they are handmade with love!
100% Nylon yarn with poly-fill stuffing, all new materials.
