The beauty of the Himalayan angels lies in their simplicity. They are made from pure sheep wool roving and are tied together with a thick golden thread. An invisible wire frame provides them with extra strength. We initially made them exclusively as Christmas decorations but have expanded on their potential.
Our angels are either assembled into attractive mobiles with a slight Tibetan touch or come together with a beautiful handmade card – thus becoming a perfect addition to any gift all year round.
The crafting of the angels is relatively easy and not very time-consuming, making their production especially attractive for Indian women in our locality who are looking for part-time and flexible work.
As such the Himalayan angels have provided the Dolls4Tibet team with the opportunity to integrate these women into the project and hence have become our stepping-stones in creating a culturally mixed workshop where Tibetan women work side-by-side with their Indian neighbours, overcoming cultural barriers and encouraging social integration.
