Royal Petites Animals

Sweet, soft and fond of shoots, leaves, and mud wallows, RenÈ hails from the southern regions of Africa (Cote d’Ivoire to be exact) where his family rules with wisdom, kind acts, and fairness for all. Like most rhinos he doesnt see so well, but he’s an excellent listener, content to offer quiet companionship by the bedside or on the bookshelf.

Explore Our New Organic Printed Cotton (Worsted)

Created in Peru using a blend of an ink press and the artisan hand, our new line of Printed Cotton is ready to wow. The unique dyeing process creates a one-of-a-kind hank, each strand with its own delicate mosaic of color.
