How cute is our little Mumba elephant?
Our limited-edition rag dolls are the result of a collaboration with Fairtrade Delhi based studio SilaiWali, a social enterprise who creates handcrafted dolls made by Afghan refugees in India by upcycling textile scraps. Through their motto: “A stitch against waste | A stitch for freedom”, Silaiwali’s handmade doll collections draw attention to the issue of textile waste and the livelihoods of displaced women.

Working in partnership with Fair Trade Forum India and the UNHCR, they currently provide sustainable incomes for around 90 artisans who craft these beautiful dolls bringing inspiration from their homeland and aiming to celebrate cultural diversity.

Each piece is cut, stitched and embroidered in Silaiwali's beautiful studio in Delhi, a small space with a big purpose.

Hello, I am Noa. During my career as a designer, I have travelled to India extensively and worked with iconic brands such as Anokhi, who introduced me to the wonders of block printing. I started to celebrate craftsmanship, collaborating with artisans to create collections inspired by traditional crafts paired with contemporary sensibility. The focus behind the brand is on small-scale ethical production, creating sustainable, unique and beautiful styles.
