Elephants live wild in nature in Zambia. Many African cultures revere the African Elephant as a symbol of strength and power. The elephant is praised for its strength, dignity, wisdom. It is also thought to bring happiness. The latter, in any case, fits well with our elephant soft toy Insofu who is an excellent friend for all children. Insofu is the word for elephant in Bemba which is one of the tribal languages spoken in Zambia.
This teal elephant is hand knitted from cotton yarn. Behind its production are women in Zambia, who gain a much needed extra income from knitting cuddly plush toys.
Insofu is a meaningful and unique gift for children of all ages.
Facts about our toys: These toys are knitted from 100% oeko certified cotton and stuffed with oeko-certified acrylic. The toys can be machine washed in warm water and drip-dried. These stuffed animals are CE marked and therefore safe for the youngest children.
Unique design: We always strive to be as true to the original design as possible. With that said, you can not find two Yawama toys precisely the same. It is part of the charm of buying handmade. Some animals are longer, shorter, rounder or slimmer than the toy you saw in the picture. However, we promise that every toy has its charm and the same high quality. Yawama animals are as unique as the women who produce them.
Length: Head to toe +-25cm
