Product Description

Ben reminds you that energy and persistence conquer all things. One of the United States’ most beloved founding fathers (and a darn cute string doll too!), Ben Franklin is known for his work as a politician, scientist, philosopher, inventor, diplomat and activist. In 1752, using a kite and a key, Franklin conducted his famous experiment that extracted electrical sparks from a cloud, proving that lightning is electricity. This later resulted in the invention of the lightning rod.

"...reminds you that energy and persistence conquer all things."

String dolls are made from one continuous piece of string! 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.

  • Made by hand in Thailand
  • One 2-3" string doll keychain
  • Lobster claw keyring
  • Double sided fabric tag

Made by hand is uniquely beautiful. Our products are made by humans, not mass produced on automated machines. Minor imperfections and variations are to be expected as a characteristic of the artistry. Please appreciate these individualities for what they are, a maker pouring their heart and soul into a unique and beautiful piece of work for you.
