Bats often time get a bad rap for being scary, but these flying mammals are much more helpful than we give them credit for being. Using their handy echolocation, bats search the evening sky to feed on thousands of mosquitos and other insects every night! To help when YOU are flying around at night, our cute little bat, Radar, makes sure you never lose your sense of direction.
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.
