At Cheengoo (which translates to “friend” in Korean), there’s no need to sacrifice “the sensible for the sensational.” Making whimsical, beautiful products for pets and babies, Cheengoo is based in San Francisco. The company began with just a few puppy collars and leashes, and now stocks dozens of products for both pet owners and parents. Cheengoo’s adorable crochet toys, which call to mind simpler times, are all crafted ethically and environmentally by a team of artisan women – a happy band of mostly mothers and farmers in rural China and Nepal. Cheengoo provides these women with free training, flexible working hours and monthly compensation, in an industry where workers are usually only paid bi-annually. The result is beautiful products, made beautifully.
Cheengoo’s adorable Cactus Crochet Rattle is lovingly hand-crocheted using luxuriously soft yarn derived from the pulp of the organically grown and sustainably harvested bamboo trees. Bamboo is the world’s fastest growing plant (growing 40+ inches in only 24 hours) making it one of the most environmentally sustainable & renewable resources. All Cheengoo toys are designed in San Francisco, USA but lovingly hand-crocheted by a team of artisan women in China, mostly mothers and farmers working to provide their families with extra income for basic needs.
