Our project aims to empower its artisans by training them in new skills and creating meaningful, income generating and enjoyable work opportunities within a homely and supportive environment. Additionally, we seek to preserve Tibet’s endangered culture with our personalized Tibetan and Steiner-inspired products.
The workshop is a small-scale, self sufficient, socially aware enterprise which abides by Fairtrade principles. Also, we aim to encourage cross-cultural understanding and social integration – an important aspect of refugee life.
Our dolls are exquisitely handcrafted and filled with pure Himalayan sheep wool. Since each doll develops its own distinctive personality, creating them becomes a delightful achievement for the maker, a unique toy for a child and a precious reminder of Tibet’s threatened identity.
