Artis Altai, located in Mongolia in the heart of the Gobi Desert, is an artisan’s workshop that provides employment opportunities for women who have little or no income. The women at Artis Altai combine traditional felt making expertise, used since the time of Genghis Khan, with innovative contemporary craft designs. Every purchase contributes directly towards improving the living conditions of women and their families while offering hope, confidence and dignity through professional activity. This business is now a legal co-operative, owned and managed completely by the women themselves.
These little Santa figurines are adorable! Each one is hand felted using natural wool, hand dyed (using top quality safe dyes) and hand stitched. Santa stands alone and is approximately 12cm tall.
note: The little Christmas Trees shown in the photographs are also available on this website.
