Luc & Lily Hand Knit Monster
Luc and Lily love to travel and go on fun adventures. Whether they are heading to the mountains, the beach or a city, Luc and Lily are always raring to go somewhere new. Their favorite travel companion: A trusty knapsack packed with a map, a book and a handy cellphone so they can call their mom or a friend when they get lost (which happens often). But all is good as Luc & Lily will always find their way back home.
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).
Each monster is packed in a paper bag with a note about each monster’s personality— ready for gifting!

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.
