Austin and Marita Miller first traveled to Bangladesh with an idealistic desire to change the world and to help those less fortunate than themselves. Fortunately, over the eight years that they lived there, they began to realize that Bangladesh was actually changing them in ways that they could not have imagined.
Austin found his passion as a product designer working with Bangladeshi designers to create products marketable in the US. He discovered Pebble, a fair trade toy manufacturer and was amazed at their business model. Pebble employs over 12,000 women who crochet and knit toys and accessories for children. When the Millers returned to their home in Ohio they became the distributors for Pebble in the US through Kahiniwalla. The Millers have been able to marry their values of compassion, imagination and sustainability, delighting in putting sustainable handmade toys into the hands of the next generation.
Kahiniwalla is proud to bring the Pebble brand to the US. Pebble products are handmade, fair trade and sustainably made in rural Bangladesh. Our products consist of knit and crochet baby hats, blankets, stuffed toys and rattles. Our aim is to provide families with toys and gifts rooted in quality and design. We curate items produced ethically and sustainably with respect for both people and planet. Our brand story honors each person who touches the products we sell – from the artisans who carefully create each toy to the future leaders who play with them.
