Tilonia® is a mission-driven enterprise building the business capacity and entrepreneurial skills of artisan enterprises in rural India. It is a joint initiative of the Barefoot College Tilonia and Friends of Tilonia, inc.
You can help us create economic opportunities for women and girls in rural India.
Our duvet sets, quilts and decorative pillow covers are sewn by women artisans of Tilonia from block print cotton fabrics handprinted by block printers of Bagru.
Block prints can range from a simple, single-color print to complex, multiple color prints. Each color is printed from a separate wooden block carved to print that specific pattern. Block printing is a centuries old craft still practiced today by artisans of India.
Grab your beachtowel, sunglasses and tanning lotion, load them into one of our colorful bags -- and head for the sunshine and surf. After your day at the beach, our assortment of accessories make it an easy transition from the beach to cocktails on the deck. Add a necklace and a wrap and you are ready for casual fun in the sun.
We offer a range of handcrafted items to delight your family and friends. From decorative bird mobiles, to handmade paperbooks, to scarves and other accessories, these handcrafted items from the artisans of Tilonia are a wonderful change from the mass-produced gift items you see at every shopping mall.
