Dolfi opened in 1892 as a modest wood carving shop. Today it is the go-to company when what you need is tradition and innovation all carved in one. You can find a wide range of typical wood carved figures: angels, crosses to hang in your home, Virgin Mary figures and saints are just but a few standing out from the selection. Come the advent period, there’s no better way to make your living room prettier than using crowns, lanterns and Christmas baubles. Puppets, pens and glasses are not only thought for Christmas, but used throughout the rest of the year. Of course, all fashioned in wood.

Judith Sotriffer

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.
