“Our very first Clothtique Possible Dreams Santa was introduced in 1985. The stiffened fabric process was inspired by European collectibles and brought to the United States. Our unique and patented combination of sculpting and stiffened fabrics brings each Santa to life.
Thousands of Clothtique Possible Dreams Santas have been designed for Santa admirers since 1985. Each is carefully packaged and delivered with exquisite detail and artistic expertise. This attention to detail is what makes Possible Dreams the No. 1 Santa brand.”
