Coco the Bookworm


Coco the Bookworm can't get enough of—you guessed it!—books.  He devours New York Times bestsellers, the hard covers displayed in the front of bookstores and, because he’s quite short, the novels at  the bottom of the bookshelves, the ones that no one really bothers to bend down to read.  His favorites are cookbooks, especially the ones with yummy desserts on the cover.

Keep Coco the bookworm close so you can keep your page when you are called away from your book, or when you need to keep a book open to be able to use both hands, when cooking or knitting, for example.

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).

Coco the Bookworm is packed in a paper bag with a note about each monster’s personality— ready for gifting!

Coco the Bookworm is available in the following colors:

  • Blue and red stripes
  • Cherry red and dark grey stripes
  • Turquoise and sea blue stripes
  • Pink and sea blue stripes

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.
