One of a kind.

One of a kind heirloom dolls.

Each doll is unique and made from an original design handcrafted by Melbourne artist and photographer Kate Karsten.

The inspiration.

Kate was the owner of a floristry business for many years, she is inspired by nature and has a passion for art and a love to create. A self taught photographer, framed prints and canvases can be found in Galleries throughout Australia.

“After finding my dear little mouse my Aunty had handmade for me from when I was a child. I decided to create an heirloom doll, a gift that one can cherish and adore for many generations to come”.

The process.

Made with beautiful natural materials, using cotton, linen, wool, suede and lace. The dolls are so warm and cosy to hold. The body, arms, and legs are made from Calio with a trim of lace. The arms are hand stitched so they can move. The hair is made from 100% Australian wool. Each doll’s face is hand embroidered with cottons made in France.

Each doll is made one at a time. 10% from each sale goes to the Starlight Children’s Foundation Australia.

The location.

Melbourne, Australia.
