"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 and 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... Jess also collaborates with several designers, using scrap remnants left over from a current season cutting. These dolls are created as limited edtion collections."
There is something truly beautiful about a threadbare, worn, and well loved doll that has been created with the finest materials.
