"Minde" refers to the piggybank being a memento of memories and coins. When I was designing "minde", I was thinking about my childhood when I used to save enough money to be able to buy my favorite toy.
Minde has three internal compartments. The objective is to make the coin reach the bottom-most chamber. Encourage the child to closely observe the sounds as they shake the piggybank and they will know if coin has reached bottom. I made the compartments to achieve sense of saving coin-by-coin and to evoke kid's natural sense of wonder.
Minde is handcrafted and painted with natural, non toxic lac in Indian contemporary form with fast and slow curves. The piggybanks may vary slightly in color given the nature of lac.
By purchasing Minde, you are promoting India's traditional handicrafts and artisans.
