Children are visually stimulated by BAREFOOT toys because of their bright colours and tactile because of their creative use of fabric textures. The toys are made from cotton and filled with kapok. Height: 33cm.

THE BAREFOOT STORY:

In 1958, Barbara Sansoni, a colourist and artist, created the BAREFOOT concept out of a need for a rehabilitation program for young Sri Lankan women, who had little schooling and no skills. Today, BAREFOOT is a premier textile design company exporting worldwide.

All BAREFOOT products are fully handmade from start to finish. The yarn is hand dyed, using premium Swiss colourfast and non-toxic dyes, then hand woven and fashioned into various products. The high quality workmanship is assured, as there is no time asserted on the weavers and needlewomen. They are not cheap substitutes for machinery, which is why BAREFOOT products are relatively expensive but they will last a lifetime and you'll be helping a poorer community. BAREFOOT products are by no means mass-produced and no two pieces are the same.

BAREFOOT is not a charity organisation. The workers receive an honest wage and are able to support themselves and their children with dignity and self-respect. Today, the cloth from BAREFOOT is in demand for its utility and appearance. Creative designers are encouraged to be innovative and stretch their creative intelligence.
