These 10-bird bell totas are made by the Barefoot College, an NGO in rural Rajasthan. Developed in 1972, the Barefoot College is a non-government organisation that has been supplying fundamental services and solutions to issues in rural neighborhoods, with the goal of making them self-sufficient and sustainable. These 'Barefoot solutions' can be broadly categorised into solar power, water, education, health care, rural handicrafts, people's action, communication, ladies's empowerment and wasteland development. They are around 50cm long and each bird has a small bell connected to the front and back as well as has sequins hand sewn onto the sides. Each bird has been treaded onto a string as well as has small coloured beads separating each bird. There is likewise a lovely small bell at the bottom. They make an ideal door hanging and are conventional in Indian families when welcoming visitors. These bell totas are not toys; they consist of small pieces so are inappropriate for kids.
