Sleepy Salvator Sock Monkey

The world needs more sock monkeys. There. I said it. There’s much to be said about taking something as old and inanimate as a sock and breathing life into it in the crafting process. Slovenia-based Cardboard Castle definitely has a knack for just that. Pictured above is Salvator, one of the crew of “models of sustainability” made from recycled materials. Don’t you just want to hug him? Pictured below are Zora, Handsome Stan, and Anabel.

      Hi Lucia,

      This post is from 2009, and unfortunately it looks like the Etsy store, Cardboard Castle, that sold these before doesn’t exist anymore. You could try to make one! There are a lot of sock monkey tutorials online. Here are a couple you could check out: and Good luck!

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
