Availability: In Stock
Jess Brown made in collaboration with Wovenplay.
This iconic rag doll has cashmere hair, a red and blue jester suit and removable purple zig zag stockings.
Each doll is hand made in a sympathetic and traditional fashion. Arms are attached with shell buttons, and each doll has a pretty heart shaped mouth.
Jess has always been inspired by beautiful textiles. She began making dolls for her children 13 years ago using old cashmere sweaters and antique remnants. As committed flea market goers, they would search together for amazing antique pieces, trims, buttons and findings.This has now all come together as a small line of one of a kind and hand made rag dolls.
Each doll is hand dyed in persian black teas to create variations in skin tones. Each doll is stuffed with a sustainable corn fiber stuffing. They are all made of cotton muslin and linen, and of primarily recycled and antique fabrics and findings. Each doll is created with button shoulders. This may not be suitable for children under three years.
There is something truly beautiful about a threadbare, worn, and well loved doll that has been created with the finest materials.
