"Mbizi" is how you say zebra in Shona, the language of the women who make these adorable animals. Each one has a unique sweater and a unique name, and they make a great gift for the kids in your life or the kid in your heart!
If you have a request for a particular sweater colour please mention it in the notes when you order and we will do our best to try and accommodate. We generally have pinks/purples, blues, green/browns, and multi-coloured.
Each mbizi comes with its own swing tag containing its personal name and the name of the lady who knitted it.
Handmade from a mixture of wool and synthetic fibres.
Filled with a polyester stuffing.
Wash by gentle sponge cleaning.
Handmade in Zimbabwe
