A famous piece of Indian home decor, our Bells Totas are hand crafted by seven women in the remote village of Chota Narena. According to legend, the bell attached to each Bell Tota is supposed to keep away malevolent spirits and confer good luck upon a household!
The cutting, sewing, stuffing, decoration of the elephants and final attachment to the tota strings, are tasks split among each of the craftswomen in their own home. Each string features 5 colorful elephants, 5 round mirrors, colorful beads and a brass bell.
With every product you purchase, you are helping provide employment, educational opportunities and medical care to artisan women in India.
