Founded in 2011, fair trade company Goose Grease creates unique, handcrafted peg dolls. Each doll is carefully hand-chiseled on an electric lathe in a small carpentry shop in Bogotá, Colombia, using sustainably harvested wood. Goose Grease then trains and employs local artisans to hand-paint the dolls with nontoxic, water-based paints, making them perfect for children of all ages.
