It’s been a long time since I designed Anu the Elephant, my first Fair Trade toy pattern for Blue Mango India. It was back in 2009, so we are all feeling…
it’s time for some new designs!
AND so guess who’s been invited to go and do the deed????
What an honour/priviledge/treat this is, for me to go to India and meet Tamar and Bruce and ALL the lovely Bluemango ladies who have been making these toys!
* If you don’t know about Blue Mango this video gives you a glimpse of the organization and the wonderful work they are doing.)
NOW I have to admit – it is a little scary knowing I am going to have to come up with some lovely new designs for them in the space of the 3 weeks I will be there, but Tamar has said the ladies will help me sew up the proto types so please keep fingers crossed that the inspirations comes!!!! : )
I would LOVE to hear from you – I don’t think they want particularly cute and cuddly toys… I dunno – so please let me know what YOU think would make a brilliant Fair Trade Toy design….
all ideas welcome please!!!
Till next time,
