the art of making dolls


Making hand knit soft toys
is a time consuming process.
It takes long hours to finish just one piece.

This is a behind the scenes look at
the bunnies and cats we have made
at our studio in Bolivia for Ooshki


We make each piece by hand using
the finest Bolivian alpaca.
Tiny needles are used in the process.

Then we fill them with fiber and join the pieces
to complete the toy.



Filling the toys {a short video}

The embroidery is all made by hand
with a contrasting color of alpaca


Crochet details: our signature cheeks, collar and beret.
