Sea Otters are more than just cute and cuddly swimmers, they are aquatic innovators that use rocks to open the shells of their prey. Did you also know that they help to preserve the health of marine kelp forests by feeding on sea urchins? Those playful Sea Otters are sweet, smart and helpful, especially Seymour, who gives you the tools to survive in the wild.
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.
