One 2”–3” String Doll character with a double-sided fabric nametag, keyring, and lobster claw.

Yeti is a legendary creature dating back before Christ that looks like an ape/man hybrid creature and is said to live in the remote Himalayan Mountains of Tibet. In the 20th Century, as more Westerners came to Nepal to climb famous mountains such as Mt. Everest, the legend of the Yeti (or Abominable Snowman) spread all over the world. Explorers came and photographed ape-like footprints in the snow and reports of seeing large, hairy unknown figures in the distance became the basis for what we now know as a Yeti. Although in recent years DNA samples taken from supposed Yeti have been found to contain Asian black and brown bear genes, the legend lives on.

Kamibashi, a member of the Fair Trade Federation and the Museum Store Association, is dedicated to bringing handmade art from Asia to the West (and beyond)! 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.  We are located in Asheville, NC and have been in business for 16 years.
