What better way to give back than by making people smile? That’s exactly what the String Dolls by Kamibashi do. These adorable handmade dolls are sure to put a big grin on anyone’s face.  What’s even better is that all of the talented artisans responsible for their creation are paid above the living wage in Thailand!

Kamibashi is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and has always been committed to Fair Trade business principles. They work with two groups of artisans from rural, farming villages in the Northern part of Thailand and pay fair prices and above-average commissions for all of the amazing work. Their String Dolls come from a variety of sources and the artisans are dedicated to creating high-quality, well-designed products.

What exactly is a String Doll, you ask? Each doll is handcrafted into a loveable character using one piece of string. There are more than 100 different characters and each is durable enough to be used as a keychain or as a bag charm. They make fantastic gifts – each is given a “good luck power, inscribed on a fabric tag.” Pick one that suits you or someone close to you!
