Dolls 4 Tibet are a small scale, socially aware doll making workshop. Based in India, they offer flexible training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged Tibetan and Indian women in their local community. They aim to provide financial and social support and enhance cross cultural understanding and integration. At the same time they aspire to create more awareness and appreciation for the unique and precious Tibetan culture with their distinct Tibetan products.
Dolls 4 Tibet produce our selection of Himalayan Angels, which are each made by between one and three women, and the beautiful, culturally authentic and traditional Tibetan dolls.
We have two types of handmade dolls:
- Bopa: 'Bopa' means Tibetan. Each character represents a region of Tibet, displaying the distinctive traditional hairstyles and garments of the area.
- Friendship: The facial expression and appearance of a Friendship doll is intentionally simple, allowing its young owner the freedom of imagination in their play.
