Hope the whale crochet keyring

Not only is the keyring design inspired by a whale called Hope, it has also been handmade by Hope Jewellery Project in Peru, a fair trade initiative which provides training for women in Lima's shanty towns.


The whale is made from crocheted Oeko-Tex cotton, which means it's free from harmful chemicals (such as dyes and finishes), and stuffed with pieces of scrap cotton that would otherwise have gone to waste. Its recognisable shape and soft fabric make finding keys in your bag a lot easier.


Hope is the name of the blue whale skeleton that suspends majestically from the rafters in the Museum's Hintze Hall, welcoming visitors and acting as a symbol of hope for a sustainable future.


Threatened with near extinction in the twentieth century, blue whales were the first species that humans decided to save on a global scale - and thanks to international conservation efforts, their numbers are increasing.
