Sometimes the other animals ask Catalina Mouse, doesn't that bonnet constrict your ears? She says, thank you for asking but in fact no, it is cozy and it stretches. Plus, when she finds nice acorns she can use her bonnet as a bag.
Catalina is made of gray organic cotton fleece, and stuffed with washable polyfill. Her ears are lined with very special Liberty of London fabric. Her eyes and nose are hand-stitched with cotton embroidery floss. She measures 14 inches, not counting her ears and tail. You can hand-wash her in warm water, and she will air dry.
About Hazel Village:
"I started Hazel Village in 2010, making the toys I would have wanted as a child. I got overwhelmed by the demand, and soon my college roommate Emma agreed to help me grow the business. Now we both have kids, we have a store, and we have sent so many animals far and wide!
It’s important to us to run the business in a way we would want our kids to see. So we partner with social enterprises around the world to make our products. These organizations have missions to empower artisans with job skills, dignified work, and fair wages. It definitely costs a bit more to make toys this way, but we believe it’s worth it. We find that when workerscare about their craft, it shows in their beautiful work."
