Erika creates dolls that will become a treasured heirloom. An object that is made to last and to be passed down through generations. Made with carefully sourced materials and antique finds.

The UK based artist Barbara Maj creates imaginative heirloom dolls and wall decors inspired by the world of nature.
Her creative process usually starts with a state of mind where she sees a colour, texture or shape and it inspires her to create a new doll. When the pattern for a new doll is ready, she cuts fabrics, sews, stuffs. Her favourite part is when she can embroider the dolls’ face. The very first moment when the doll comes to live.
She believes that happy kids make a better world.

With her love of creative play Merrilee Liddiard has been immersed in making magic out of the simple things since childhood.

Therefore, she created a charming collection of handmade heirloom dolls for children to love. Each doll is oversized which makes them perfect for little hands to hold and to bring along on all their adventures.
The dolls are all one of a kind with hand painted faces and beautiful, handmade clothing and accessories. Each doll comes with its own name and a description of her personality.

Sahar Wehbeh wanted to buy a doll for her one-year old daughter in 2011 as a Christmas gift. She couldn’t find one that matched her taste. So she decided to make one herself and went shopping for materials in New York. It took her months to figure out how to make one using her mother’s old sewing machine.
In her pursuit of a stylish doll for her daughter, Sahar came up with the idea of starting her own doll-making business. And Dumyé was launched in July 2013. Here you can find a large variation of dolls. Skin tones, angels or one wearing a jalabiya. Every dolls is customisable.
