Who is Tanka Doll

Hi I am Tanka doll! Tanka (meaning stitch), is the smallest unit in sewing, the first step where we begin from. 

I am about 8 inches tall. I come in a multipurpose cloth bag, wearing a removable 100% Cotton dress, that is hand sewn using a basic stitch.

I come in three different forms, grown out of the basic stitches that are fundamental techniques of hand sewing and embroidery.

I am meticulously handcrafted by a group of women artisans from village Ghasipura, U.P. These women upcycle Kacha Tanka fabric waste into beautiful things, and I am their latest creation.

Make me a part of your lives now and help our artisans sustain themselves.

 

 

I am

- here to hold your hand through the basics of hand sewing

- a DIY activity for adults who wish to learn or refresh basics of sewing

- a wonderful gift for your little ones, creating something handmade. I can sit, do splits and play any game they choose!

- not just a toy, but also as a keepsake from your journey into handmade. Make me a part of a cosy corner of your home, decorate me on a Christmas tree, fire place, bookshelf or in your kids room

-not factory made, not perfect, 100% Handmade, 100% local

 

 

DIY Activity Kit - Sewing with Tanka Doll

To get started all you need is thread, needle, scissors

and of course me. Follow the stitch patterns on the dress I am wearing, study the technique and begin sampling the same on my spare dress.

Think of the spare dress as a canvas to explore, learn and experiment. Don't be afraid of making mistakes you can always get another spare dress from us.

Once you are done sampling, you will have a basic understanding of the technique and have created a new dress for me using the Tanka.

Hand sewing is a skill that is useful, comes handy to mend or fix. It is also a fun way to explore your creative side, a relaxing hobby and a stress buster to some. Begin learning craft of the two hands now!
