Product Story

This has got to be the sweetest dressed toy elephant you will ever see.  The dressed toy elephants are so adorable they are sure to be loved by little den dwellers everywhere.

The elephants are woven in blues and greys and as they are handmade, no two are identical. Each toy is made from start to finish by one artisan, who is responsible for the quality of the final product.

The toys are made from cotton, cotton and silk, or wool yarn. The dyes are safe and where stuffing is used, it comprises kapok pulp. All fibres are natural and therefore biodegradable. They are also washable.

Brand Story

Our dressed toy elephants come from Lazy Lizards,who import Barefoot Toys from Sri Lanka.  

 The Barefoot story began  in 1962, when talented artist, colourist, designer and entrepreneur Barbara Sansoni began working almost exclusively with women in rural communities.

For over 40 years the Barefoot family has provided training and fair wages to its workers and an environment conducive to creativity.

Sansoni textiles are inspired by the vivid land and seascapes, foliage and wildlife of Sri Lanka.

Goods are produced in village workshops, close to the homes of the weavers and sewers and even though Barefoot now exports to over 30 countries, nothing is mass produced.

No child labour is used. There are no factories and no production lines.

As required by law, all toys sold by My Own Den the European Safety Certificate or CE label.
