Owning any pet is good for your heart. Cats in particular lower your stress level—possibly since they don't require as much effort as dogs (especially the handknit kind!) —and they lower the amount of anxiety in your life. Petting a cat has a positive calming effect. What are you waiting for? Choose between our Tabby Cat and Black Cat!
Each handknit Cat measures approximately 10 inches tall, and around 7 inches long. Do remember, that each hand knit item is unique and sizes may vary slightly.
Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
