Bebemoss organic handmade toys. Changing lives, one stitch at a time

This tribe of knitting mompreneurs from Turkey is determined to start a new life while preserving our planet

Izabela is an “accidental social entrepreneur” based in Turkey. She is also a mum, and that’s why she deeply feels that each kid should have enough food, the opportunity to learn and an environment to thrive. In Bebemoss studio, refugee mums from Syria and underprivileged Turkish mothers gather to produce these beautiful organic handmade toys.

Bebemoss was founded to make organic toys, but also to help families in need. The goal was to give jobs to mothers in need and refugee mums coming from Syria, who have to face many challenges. Many of those women have no other means to get a job and juggle their families at the same time

Today the brand has on board a community of over 80 mothers, also like to be called mompreneurs.

When they are all together, in a beautiful home environment, magic happens. In love with babies, helping to sustain their families, they believe in the importance of preserving the planet as well as our health.

The toys are entirely handcrafted; bears, lions, monkeys and elephants made out with organic cotton yarn. All the toys are made with love. Changing lives, one stitch at a time.

More opportunities for refugees mums

The jobs are sustainable because whether they produce toys from the workshop or from home, they can bring their little ones along helping to balance their chore and life. They can also count on a fair pay. Further to that, each toy sold through their website helps to donate an amount to keep supporting programs for refugee children, especially education.
