It's so heartwarming to see such a spotlight on animal welfare at the moment, especially the whole plastic in our oceans crisis (see more here). Obviously anything dog related is specifically important to us too.
Anyone else been watching Paul O'Grady's For The Love Of Dogs - India? There seems to be a massive problem with stray dogs in India, lots suffering from diseases and dehydration. But programes like Paul's, and charities like TOLFA (Tree Of Life For Animals), based in Rajasthan, are key to helping the issue in India.
TOLFA is a rescue centre that works to eradicate rabies and to treat injured animals, as well as sterilize street dogs and rehome too. They have teamed up with amazing artist, Saira Hunjan, to create an exclusive T-shirt with all proceeds going to help rescued animals in India.
Saira, a renowned tattoo artist, has also worked with fashion brands Tod's, Orlebar Brown and Ettinger to create exclusive ranges using her intricate, delicate artwork that has been printed on bags and clothes, and etched into accessories. And now she has drawn this enchanting Indian inspired piece for this collaboration.
"The magical TOLFA dog goddess is a reminder to see the divine in all. She helps to protect all that are guided to her for love and kindness. Under the Tree of Life, she gives shelter and nourishment. And from her heart she radiates the light to heal.” Says Saria.
