Znuggle™ soft toys bring joy to little ones while helping their parents educating them on issues that matter.
Our soft toys are made entirely from rescued natural materials and fully handcrafted by rural women in Montenegro, Europe.
With every Znuggle purchase, you stand with us on issues that matter.
WE DYE OUR WOOL WITH PLANTS
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.
Our soft toys help children connect with nature at different levels to better protect it. Our story book is a modern tale with an ecological twist, and our soft toys are made of rescued virgin wool and plants.
Each purchase also helps empowering women and preserving disappearing traditions in a vulnerable region of Europe – Northern Montenegro.
Raising awareness on the importance of protecting our ecosystems is another mission of Znuggle™. In our first story book, Znuggle gently raises awareness for kids from 7 to 12 years old on Circular Economy, Zero Waste principle and environmental protection, so they can learn how to preserve it better.
