Celebrating mass-produced, frugal, aesthetic design from india

Koode ka tasla: the little mentioned one

SO, when the jhaadu does its job, who is responsible for collecting and chucking the dust and litter out of the house?  The cleaning lady, ofcourse, would come the prompt reply. But, it becomes easier with the help of this little mentioned cleaning tool, a tasla – more precisely a dirt picker .

With a little slant like the shovel, it becomes a easy pick up tool to collect dirt and throw it out.

The function is simple. This utilitarian tool derives its paradigm from the slant shape of our open palms.

Generally available in injection moulded plastic in dull colour palletes, the tasla ranges between  Rs.15 to 35

So , why is it an object of our affection ?

This cleaning tool scores high on the factors of borrowing from natural examples for its design.Its design is simple,
Most of its sizes are designed to suit human proportions.

    And for people who can’t afford this also,they use old X ray sheets. This is really innovative reuse of X rays by daily housekeeping people. Sheet is flexible, easy to use and precisely picking up all the dirt.
