Wooden Airplane and Pilot
Hand-chiseled from Urapán wood on an electric lathe, these classic wooden peg dolls are finished with USA-made non-toxic water-based paints. Each doll is unique and safe for little hands. Goose Grease designs their dolls in their Brooklyn studio and work with artisans in Bogotá, Colombiato who help reproduce their designs.
Goose Greese's carpenters uses sustainably-harvested trees; when one tree is used, two are planted. Their team includes Goose Grease-trained craftsmen and craftswomen, from Bogotá to Brooklyn, and each doll is carefully hand-drawn and hand-painted from start to finish.
- Includes: one wooden airplane and a 2.5" pilot.
As a fair trade company, Goose Grease was born in 2011 and ever since has been expanding in unexpected directions. Soon after painting wooden dolls for children, Goose Grease branched out to produce THE ORIGINAL custom wedding cake toppers and custom painted families. Selling unpainted supplies just seemed to be the next logical step, putting together DIY supplies of all kinds. Goose Grease's Artistic Director is Anna Leigh Donado who, along with her husband Juan Carlos Donado, is committed to growing this purpose driven company.
Goose Grease’s vision has always been to provide the highest quality, most personalized service. We are happy to have established a fair trade relationship with a small carpenter in Bogotá, Colombia that makes our doll bodies. We use the help of local artisans, who we train and employ, to paint our standard designs. We hope to continue this tradition of seeking out wood-worked items from fair trade, artisanal, and sustainable sources.
