Silaiwali - NARGIS

€49.00 €58.00

Rag doll of refugee women from Afghanistan now living in India. The Silaiwali dolls are handmade and measure approximately 47 x 13 cm. Each doll is unique and wears an individual handmade outfit.

Each doll's sustainable clothing is made from leftover fabrics. These residues, which end up in the large clothing landfill in India via the fast fashion industry, are destroyed or burned. Silaiwali transforms these remains into beautiful dolls with a boho look.

Each doll comes with a mattress, pillow and bedspread so she can lie in a bed. The packaging (the bed) is a beautiful (foldable) cardboard gift box with a carrying strap. Each doll is attached to a label with a QR code that tells the beautiful story behind the dolls in a video. The history and background information about Silaiwali also includes a booklet.

Materials used: Cotton (doll, mattress, pillow and bedspread), polyfill, wool (hair), recycled cardboard (folding box).

NB The dolls are not sold as toys as they have not been professionally tested according to EU standards (the dolls should be tested individually as they are handmade). We believe they are safe for children but assume no responsibility as a company.

Silaiwali has partnered with FAIR TRADE FORUM INDIA, which, together with UNHCR, ensures livelihoods for refugees.
