This adorable toy is the result of a trade initiative launched by Menu and aid organisation Danida entitled Nepal Projects. Nepal Projects provides fair-trade employment and opportunities in some of the world's poorest countries and amongst the most disadvantaged people by combining traditional fabric-working skills with a contemporary Scandinavian aesthetic.

In addition to the teddy bear, Nepal Projects line includes scarves, blankets, pillows and bags all made from Himalayan cashmere, merino wool, leather and cotton.
