The cute and cuddly-looking Giant Panda of China is considered vulnerable and endangered due to the loss of forest habitat. As one of the world's most protected and rarest animals, Gigi the Giant Panda reminds you not to squander our precious natural resources.
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.
