If you go down to the woods today ... you’ll want to purchase this delightful woodland creature to take with you! Adorable for autumn, charming for Christmas or a simply delightful gift for any time of year. One hundred and fifty artisans are employed by the supplier of these lovely items, in Manila in the Philippines. They are hand-crafted from sustainably sourced fibres of the Buri Palm Tree, which is commonly found in there. The company likes to involve the local community as much as possible and teaches skills to help people to help themselves, including how to make these lovely creatures. In addition to the statutory requirements, the company also provides their employees with many benefits including free meals, loans, health care, accommodation, if required, provision for schooling and scholarships for employees’ children. The employee of the month receives a free bag of rice. Although most of the production happens in the factory, some women are able to work from home. This squirrel with his little nut shell ears, clutching a nut and cute wooden feet is adorable. With six other characters in this range they make collectable and enchanting gifts.
