Review/Giveaway Toockies Organic Handmade Housewares

Sinko Corp
Asura BibiI love hand made items for my home.  They are usually much better made than store bought with the added bonus of supporting a family business.  So when Toockies offered to let me review their handmade organic household products I was so excited! 
Toockies is a company that works with  women and their families in Nababpur, India to produce these lovely hand crotcheted dishcloths, potholders, hot pads, and washcloths.  This helps these women who struggle with desperate poverty earn money for themselves and their children. You can see the artisans HERE.
I have to say I love the idea of this company!  The women who founded it have such a heart to help  women in third world countries earn a living.  Not only that, but the products they produce are beautiful and extremely well made.  The pot holders and washcloths I received are made from 100%  organic cotton with no chemicals or dyes.  They are all hand crocheted by women in India.  I think its pretty cool that I am getting something made by a woman in India anyways!
I really liked all of them but my favorites are the pot holders because they are extra thick and I love the shape of the Loving Heart Pot Holder.  These are certainly thick enough to pick up anything hot and work great at hot pads too.  I use allot of cast iron for my cooking and the handles get super hot so an extra thick pot holder is essential.

They are affordable and I have washed them several times already and they are still in perfect  condition.  These would make a lovely mothers day gift.  Think of it, not only are you giving something useful, beautiful, and unique to your own mother, but you are helping another mother support her family!  You can purchase their products HERE.
