Exceptional felting workmanship makes our highly representational animal finger puppet ornaments something very special. Educational, decorative and entertaining for young and old. Lovingly soft to the touch because they are made with a fine natural wool. Each character comes with a cotton loop and can be hung as an ornament. Our charming finger puppets are lovingly handmade by skilled artisans working in a Fair Trade production center in Kathmandu, Nepal. Artisans use 100% natural wool and non-toxic, azo-free dyes. Wool scraps are recycled into new products. An exclusive design by dZi Handmade.

ABOUT THE MAKER

dZi Inc. has been working with artisans in the Tibetan exile community in India since 1990, and with Nepali artisans involved in traditional Tibetan style crafts since 1995. Their products are marketed as part of dZi’s ‘Tibet Collection’ line. Authentic cloth prayer flags printed on hand-carved woodblocks are specially made for dZi by The Gu-Chu-Sum (9-10-3) Movement of Tibet, established in 1991 and based in Dharamsala, India. Gu-Chu-Sum was first organized by ex-political prisoners from the Tibetan freedom movement; monks, nuns and lay people who had escaped from Tibet due to political persecution. Its purpose is to provide employment and support to Tibetan refugees needing help in India, and to educate about human rights abuses in Tibet.
