Description

This Kantha Handmade Stuffed Elephant from Anchal Project is hand-stitched and absolutely adorable! With its naturally-dyed cotton fabric and hand-stitched details, each stuffed animal is uniquely beautiful. Ethically  made in India, these stuffies upcycle scraps of fabric from larger pieces like garments. That makes these cuties zero waste and super eco-friendly! Plus, because they’re made of natural cotton, they can simply be spot washed when they’re dirty. Skilled artisans make these adorable little friends in India—receiving a fair wage for their beautiful work, of course!

This stuffed elephant is high-quality and destined to become a hand-me-down for generations to come! It’s handmade, meaning it’s made to last. Plus, it’s as cute as can be!

These stuffies are sold individually. They’re available in four colour palettes: mustard (yellow) with bone (unbleached white) accents, blush (a light peachy-pink) with bone accents, bone with mustard accents and slate (dusty blue) with mustard accents. All are made of natural cotton and have a cute tassel tail. You’ll really see and feel the difference in quality that handmade makes!
