Welsh Border Fan – Corn Dolls
A beautifully hand crafted corn dolly created by a genuine cottage industry in England. Lovingly woven from specially grown, and harvested, wheat straw.
Made to a traditional, time-honoured design, their exact significance is shrouded in folklore and meanders from county to county across the country.
A talisman of good fortune made from the last sheaves of corn harvested, capturing the spirit of the crop to carry over into the next year. Originally a pagan symbol of fertility, it has carried over into the Christian Harvest Festival.
Hanging indoors it should last for many years.
