Our collection of beautifully handcrafted Bonikka rag dolls are created around the concept of family, the bond that ties us together and through which a special kind of love and sense of responsibility are expressed.
Bonikka addresses a universal need we all have for someone familiar to share experiences with, confide in, and provide comfort. The term familiar, from familiaris in Latin, literally means "to be like family”. Bonikka dolls are about exactly that; each doll is a friend, waiting to be adopted by some special child as their favorite companion, ready to provide comfort whenever needed and remind them they are indeed deeply loved.
BONIKKA® SHARE THE LOVE™ - Caring for Underprivileged Girls Project
Because family means so much to us, our hearts go out to those who have no family of their own, and particularly to children who have been orphaned and might not receive the same kind of love and nurturing the rest of us perhaps take for granted.
It was with this in mind, that we established an alliance with Viharamahadevi Centre for Child Development Centre, an orphanage located in close proximity to our main factory in Biyagama, Sri Lanka. The facility is a non-profit organization serving the needs of girls between 05 and 18 years of age in providing food, housing and clothing for the girls under their care.
With each Bonikka purchase made, a portion of the sale is donated to subsidize the living expenses of the girls housed at this facility.
