Who made this product: Gogo Olive

Gogo Olive

Gogo Olive was set up in Mutare in the Eastern Highlands of Zimabwe in November 2008 to give local women the opportunity to use their craft skills to build a future for themselves and their families. They chose knitting because the materials are basic and cheap, it can be done anywhere and at any time and is a skill that is practical and profitable for the women to learn. Each knitted animal, or 'Shamwari' (meaning 'friend' in the local Shona language) is lovingly handmade with individuality and character!
