SilaiWali is a social enterprise in New Delhi, run by French born Iris and her partner native born Bish.
Iris and Bish both come from design backgrounds and are socially responsible people who want to leave the world a better place.
They jointly set up SilaiWali to train and employ refugee Afghan women to make gorgeous rag dolls which are dressed in sophisticated and fashionable outfits. These are made from re-cycled textile scaps generated by Delhi's garment industry.
Each doll comes in its own box that opens to show the doll lying in its bed. Remove the bedcover and the doll is then revealed in all its splendour.
Every doll is unique, wearing its own individual hand made outfit.
