Mongo Soft Animals Launch

  • Words Bookstore Cafe (map)

We are thrilled to host a morning showcasing the beautiful Mongo soft animals, hand crafted by the native Mexican artisans of Fundación Mongo.

Fundación Mongo is a cultural initiative created to preserve the heritage of the indigenous people of Mexico.  By providing an income to the artisans, Mongo ensures that their cultures and traditions remain intact.  The Mongo animals, crafted from handmade textiles, are the flagship product of the Foundation and represent the mythical 'nahual', spirit beings or guardian angels that manifest in the form of animals.  Proceeds from the sale of the toys will go to the Foundation which operates under fair trade principals.

As the festive season approaches, Mungo Animals would be the perfect gift for young or old!  We hope you can join us and support this wonderful initiative..
