These dolls originated in China. They were originally made of bamboo. For the Chinese, this plant is synonymous with luck, strength, resilience and long life. For this, they put the lucky bamboo in the house, but also made dolls out of bamboo. These they carried with them and were said to bring luck to the wearer.
Nowadays, the dolls are no longer made of bamboo, but of wood. We give the lucky dolls to people we wish a little luck, for an exam, performance or during a difficult period. Because who couldn’t use a little luck in the form of one of these lucky dolls.
