Wood carvers and woodcarving in VAL GARDENA – a craft tradition

In Val Gardena, the centuries-old tradition of woodcarving has remained alive to this day and still represents an important sector of the economy.

Visitors and art lovers value the excellent workmanship and traditional figurines.
Dolfi continues to use the tools designed generations ago to craft its own sketches and manufactures its wooden figurines exclusively in Alto Adige and each product is handcrafted from start to finish.

Specialized designers sketch the outline of the product. Based on these sketches our collaborators create terracotta models. One of these is chosen as the master model and enlarged to 60 cm.
The first wooden model is carved out of Swiss pine or linden from this model. This original serves as a base for the bronze casting model.
We then use this model as a template for the rough figurines which will then be hand carved by our team and turned into the high-quality products, we market
