Judith Sotriffer
Phone +39 0471 797758

Families in Val Gardena were shrewd businesspeople already centuries ago, and understood they could fill a gap in the market. That is when they started catering for wooden toys.
The original Val Gardena puppet was first produced sometime around the beginning of the 18th century, and the tradition went lost around 1930.
Judith Sotriffer deftly and lovingly brings the old tradition of wooden toys back to life with a flick of her carving wrist. In a time where many toys are made of plastic, wood has the power of bringing back the sparkle to the eyes of both children and adults.
