Fun Finds For Mom

Toto Knits

This gorgeous organic cotton knitwear for children is made by single mothers in Kenya. The fun ballet skirts, booties, legwarmers, hats, sweaters, hooded blankies are more — are designed by Erin Brennan Allan, the founder of Toto Knits, which was just launched this past August.

The knitters are paid by the piece which allows them to work as much or as little as they like. Each piece is made by hand, therefore a one-of-a-kind item, and signed by the knitter.

All the hand-knit goodies from Toto Knits are very well priced (booties are $10, hats $9, skirts $15, legwarmers $18, hooded sweaters $35), and you can feel good about your money going toward the hard-working Kenyan moms behind the knitting needles. Plus, Toto Knits is generously offering 20% off to Fun Finds For Mom readers, with the code FFFM.

Check out all the fresh springtime children’s knitwear on the Toto Knits website, and be sure to pop by their blog for a behind-the-scenes look at starting a business and raising two little ones in Kenya.

Here’s a peek at the Toto Knits knitters (check out their animal hooded sweaters!) and founder. Thanks for reaching out to FFFM readers!
