This jolly walrus is all-organic and dyed by hand in a bath created from the bean pods of a mimosa tree found in Rwanda. His whiskers are attached one at a time and his hat is created from yarn dyed in a bath of madder root and then knit by hand. This masterpiece, along with the entire felted sculpture collection, helps us give life-saving employment to young deaf women in northern Rwanda.

The detail on this masterpiece will bring a smile to anyone who meets him.
