Lumily Ellie the Elephant — Mexico
Lumily artisan partners in Chiapas, Mexico create these masterpieces from scraps of wool.
The wool is obtained within the artisan community from their own sheep. It is then washed, carded, spun and finally dyed. It's then hand woven in a back strap loom and cloth is made. The cloth is used for clothing for them and scraps are used to make the animals. The animal is shaped and hand sewn then stuffed to create each magical piece.
All is done in the comfort of their own homes!
Each piece is unique, with no two being the same. Visit us in store if you have a colour preference.
