Our Karuna Punjab dolls highlight several crafts of Punjab including naara-making (the drawstrings used in salwars), and paraandi to adorn the braids and embroidery.
Left over Bukkram is used as the fusing fabric, Khaddar (Khadi) is used to stitch their garments, and phulkari work as the embroidery.
Karuna Jugni is our contemporary doll, and Karuna Veeranwali is the traditional Punjabi doll. Both of them compliment one another, and are constantly learning from each other.
These dolls are collectibles and are also designed to be functional as well. They can be used as key chains, car hangings, handbag accessories, curtain holders, napkin holders, and so much more. They’re aim is to spread the message of joy with compassion and courage in challenging times.
A lot of the women involved in the making of our Karuna Punjab dolls are wives and family members of farmers who have been victim to suicide.
The makers’ aim is to spread happiness and to make sure that everyone, just like them, is able to stay strong and continue having hope even through the all the pain and struggle (especially during this period of covid)
