Our totas are sold as individual strings of birds.
Each tota is expertly crafted from cotton rags recycled from the Indian garment industry. Sequins are hand stitched to their sides before they are threaded on to a string, with small, coloured beads separating each one. The tota is then finished with a small bell, announcing the arrival of your loved ones with a welcoming ring.
Due to the handmade nature of these products the colours and designs may vary, but loveliness comes as standard.
Please note: Our bird totas are not intended for use as a toy, and contain small pieces so are unsuitable for children.
Make a Difference
Our rag rugs and bell totas are handmade by the Barefoot College, a fantastic organization making a great difference to communities in Rajasthan, India.
Since 1972 they have been providing basic services and solutions to issues in rural communities, with the objective of making them self-sufficient and sustainable. Their many ‘Barefoot Solutions’ can be categorised into solar energy, water, education, health care, rural handicrafts, people’s action, communication, women’s empowerment, and wasteland development. We have seen for ourselves the work the college is doing and are truly inspired by it.
By making a purchase, you are helping to continue the fantastic work of our producers.
