PADUKAS expands into making cloth toys and finds an immediate market. Over the Christmas holidays, Padukas attended a Christmas Bazaar at Baro Furniture Store in Lower Parel, Mumbai. We were advised to bring lots of small gift items. So our Padukas seamstresses worked over time to create a series of Yo Yo Dolls for the event. We were thrilled that our dolls were so well received and almost all of our stock was sold out during the two day event.
And one of the other merchants liked our toys and gave us an order for 100 toys to be delivered as soon as possible.
We think Padukas might be onto something big! This clown was modeled after one that Jeanetta had as a little girl and brought with her from the US. She never thought that it would be so desirable in India.
The other toys were an elephant, a cat, and a peacock. You can purchase them from this website on the "Small Gift Collection".
