If you are looking for handmade plush toys to give your little one that they will love but are also socially conscious, this line from Dsenyo is a great option. The fair trade social business helps female artisans in countries like Brazil, Malawi and Zambia by giving them sustainable jobs and an alternative source of income. Where as the Dsenyo online shop offers a wide variety of products including home decor and clothing, their Little Friends line will appeal specifically to young children.
The handmade plush toys in particular help 17 members of Malawi's Mwayiwathu HIV Support Group.

A true menagerie of animals, the diverse product line are made out of a cotton African fabric.
