Each Toda-embroidered masterpiece is individually created by the few women-artisans of this small indigenous community of the Nilgiris practising this rare GI-tagged art.
Made available in limited numbers and designs, no two pieces will ever be alike.


I received my first Toda stole as a precious gift. Indeed, it was a gift in more ways than one! It’s a capsule of what efforts Ramya Reddy and the team have put into the project. It’s light on the shoulder and doubles up as a dupatta. I carry it with me on all my trips. Cool when it’s warm. Warm when it’s cold. It’s a comforter set on centuries of love, wisdom and, joy. It’s not just a stole. For me, it’s a celebration.

Love love love my new acquisition! Elegant and chic, light and breezy, this artisanal masterpiece captures the spirit of the Nilgiris. The meticulously embroidered red and black motifs are magnificently presented on a delicate cloud-like base of the finest cotton wool suitable for every climate and every occasion.

As an internationally travelling person and Ex Global Senior Vice President
for Fashion Sourcing for a global brand, I love indigenous artistry, and to finally hold a product that you know comes from a transparent supply chain is sheer joy. One can feel the energy of the Toda women who embroidered this under a tree in their ancestral land. Telling their stories with now, hope.

As a consumer, the soft drape of the fabric and the exquisite delicate embroidery is a match made in heaven. I can easily carry this all around the world and dress up or dress down according to my choice.

Thank you Coonoor & Co for creating these masterpieces and bringing value and meaning to what we wear and therefore how we feel by making choices like these ❤️

Looking forward to more
