I was searching for worry dolls, I remember the tiny string versions fondly as a child, but I stumbled upon Kamibashi dolls and I knew these were the version of that concept we needed!
There's something so powerful about a token of self assurance and an affirmation in the darker times or in challenging situations. It's why I love my enamel Pins, it's why my keys are always adorned with meaningfull keychains. I really loved how specific they are - I have no interest in vague positive notions, I need to connect with the meaning and these did that for me, I hope you love them!

We work directly with artists in northern Thailand to make The String Doll Gang - 200+ small characters made almost entirely of string bearing messages of good fortune to everyone.
