OUR STRING DOLL ARTISTS are based in small villages in the mountains outside of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. Crafting String Dolls is the main occupation for most of our artisans, which means a reliable income and improved living standards for their families and communities in their economically developing regions. When they are not making string dolls, many of our workers spend time taking care of their families and tending to their vegetable gardens for self-sufficiency. Some have other jobs such as sewing or working in shops and restaurants.
The string version of Claude Monet, a found of the French Impressionist movement, looks just like the renowned master and even carries a painting of lily pads under his arm. Don't forget to have him on hand when being introduced to new people because this mini Monet ensures you make a good impression on everyone you meet.
