Finding your place in the circle of life is a great adventure.
So when the king of your jungle goes looking for his, be at the ready with Mirasa’s line of locally designed toys and soft goods inspired by traditional Indian embroidered crafts.
Fill the playroom with vividly colored, handmade, plush cotton rhinos, zebras, hippos, and elephants. Adorn him with a monkey wristband. And decorate his den with oversize floor cushions, throw pillows, and a play mat that doubles as a wall hanging.
Everything’s ecofriendly and made with fair trade practices.
And we’re not lion.
