HANDCRAFTED WOOLEN SOFT TOYS WITH A SOCIAL MISSION
Empowering rural women in Montenegro while educating our kids on Circular Economy.
Znuggle™ handcrafted soft toys are made entirely from natural products. From the virgin wool preparation with plant dyes, to the individual crochet finish, Znuggle™ provides economical support to rural women in Montenegro. Our purpose is to spread some joy while providing a teaching aid on ecosystems and the circular economy.
WE DYE with BERRIES & ONIONS
We collect onion peels, aronia berries and dried pomegranates to dye ourselves our wool. This gives to our products beautiful colors and a natural appearance. Our soft toys are therefore completely ecological and contain no chemicals.
entirely made by hand
That is what makes our products truly unique: we harvest, wash, spin, dye and crochet the wool of our products entirely by hand from the sheep to your soft toy. It is a very long process and that is what gives our products their uniqueness and make them so special to everyone who owns them.

WE PROVIDE WORK opportunities FOR WOMEN in VULNERABLE areas
That is really what Znuggle™ is about. Creating work opportunities in the Northern part of Montenegro, where unemployment rate is very high. During the summer season, many families live in wooden huts in the mountains with their sheep flock and Znuggle™ provides them with additional economical activities through very fair income.
MADE WITH virgin wool
Znuggle™ products are made from 100% quality wool harvested every spring from local sheep. Because working with wool requires lots of effort, most people throw it away, or worse: burn it, which is harmful for the health and the environment. We collect this wool to create our products. We carefully wash it by hand several times before we spin the yarn and stuff the products with it.
Raising awareness on the importance of protecting our ecosystems is another mission of Znuggle™. Through a series of exciting books, Znuggle educates kids from 6 to 12 years old on Circular Economy, the Zero Waste principle and environmental protection, so they can learn how to preserve it better for future generations.
