Muma and Bub

These gorgeous fairtrade knitted animals are lovingly handmade by women in Zimbabwe! They are called 'Shamwaris' which is the Zimbabwe Shona word for 'friend'. By making these knitted animals, women are given the opportunity to earn an income so they can provide for themselves and their families.  The women love getting together and have a lot of fun! 

Each Shamwari is as unique as the women who made it! Each comes with its own Tagtag containing its personal name and the name of the lady who knitted it.

Colours and sizes vary for each and may differ from the picture, please note any preference in comments at the checkout and we will match it as close as possible.  Height varies between 20 and 30 cm. Made from a mixture of wool, acrylic and polyester stuffing, they can be washed by gentle sponge cleaning.

Why not purchase some of these 'friends' for your friends today!?

From our customers

  • EPHAS offers fantastic customer service, postage is reasonable and quick and the products are simply beautiful. It is easy to promote such gorgeous pieces when they have a story behind them like EPHAS does, and my customers appreciate my sourcing products that are Fair Trade and align with their beliefs. (So not only are the products amazing, but they also sell well.) Wouldn't hesitate to recommend purchasing EPHAS products

  • I have been thinking about your products a lot. They have struck a cord with me. The story cards were very useful and helped me to clearly understand what Starfish Project does and the important work they are doing. I am really glad to have met EPHAS - thank you for introducing me to your products and giving me the opportunity to support such a meaningful cause.

  • I am always really excited with the new jewellery designs that we order in from EPHAS. The entire range has been very popular with our customers and ever since it landed at One Village, it has been flying out of the shop! We have now increased our range of Starfish Project jewellery to keep up with the demands of our customers. We feel very fortunate to share in the journey with EPHAS to create a brighter future for the women who are behind the beautiful jewellery. Thank you for always providing us with excellent customer care.
