Vincent van Gogh, an impressionist painter who was born in the Netherlands and died at the age of 37 in France, is one of the world's most influential artists. Although he never became famous during his lifetime, his paintings and other artwork thankfully live on in art museums around the world, including the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, where his string doll likeness can be found in the gift shop. It really is true: Vincent inspires creative genius.
"...inspires creative genius."
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.
