About


Organic Cotton Soft Toys Australia
Organic Cotton Soft Toys Australia

 Deidaa's eco-warriors

At Deidaa, we make organic cotton scarves, aprons, bags and nursery items for our own range and for other clients. Often, we are left with surplus fabric from our different projects. Being committed to a waste - free ecosystem, we were keen to develop a product that would utilise this surplus fabric. We hit upon the idea of making organic eco friendly toys, organic rag dolls, doorsteps and book ends from leftover fabric. The next challenge was to find a suitable filling. After much research, we decided to use filling made from recycled plastic bottles. Trial and error followed. Many prototypes later, Deidaa's eco warriors were born. 

 Deidaa's eco-warriors are organic stuffed animals and rag dolls handmade from leftover organic cotton fabric and filling made from recycled plastic bottles.   Included in Deidaa's eco - warrior range are organic stuffed toys, organic cotton dolls, organic stuffed bunny, unicorn and organic mermaid doll. Among Deidaa's eco-warriors are Friends, a buddy group of three multicultural handmade dolls. These multicultural organic dolls foster friendship and acceptance.

 Deidaa's eco toys, rag dolls, australian animals, unicorn and mermaid are excellent Christmas and birthday gifts. They add to a themed kid's room decor. You will receive your toys in August, ahead of the festive season. Shipping is free within Australia. We charge a flat AUD 10.00 fee for international shipping.  All toys have medallions around their necks that tell the eco-warrior story.

Risks and challenges

Do you know cotton cultivation for a shirt requires 700 gallons of water? Mono crop cultivation of regular cotton requires excessive irrigation. This reduces the fertility of the soil. Cotton farming accounts for 25% of the world's insecticide consumption. Chemical pesticides can be carcinogenic. They can be harmful for human beings, farm workers, flora and fauna and communities. Deidaa uses GOTS certified organic cotton. This organic cotton cultivation uses minimal or natural irrigation and crop rotation techniques. GOTS certified organic cotton does not use chemical pesticides, fertilisers or fungicides.

Single-use plastic bottles are one of the worst pollutants of our environment. They clog our water bodies and choke our land and marine animals.

Deidaa has combined surplus organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles to create Deidaa's eco -warriors - organic children's toys, multicultural rag dolls, mermaid dolls, unicorn, organic stuffed bunny and more. We need your support to ensure Deidaa's organic eco - friendly toys can spread the eco - word far and wide.

Sustainability is as much about the communities as it is about the environment. Deidaa' s eco toys sustain communities of women artisans who earn a livelihood from bringing these warriors to life. The premises they work in are SEDEX certified for ethical production.

Many brainstorming sessions happened before we zeroed in on names for our eco-warriors. We are yet to find names for our mythical creatures, unicorn and mermaid. Please let us know if you have any suggestions.

Would you like us to add any other farm animal soft toy or jungle animal toy or dolls added to our eco-warrior brood? Please send your wish list to us.
