Rina Agulha Fina

Heirloom cloth dolls, unique, with their own modern style.

History and inspiration.

Ana Ferreira is the creator of these beautiful heirloom dolls. In her own words, Ana tells the story behind Rina Agulha Fina.

‘Rina Agulha Fina’ is the beginning part of a small poem that my grandmother used to say to me when I was a little girl and I never forgot it! It refers to a young lady (me) that, with little stitches, was sewing a beautiful coat to her love.

Making dolls.

Time passed and three years ago, after learning how to sew with a sewing machine, Ana brought Rina Agulha Fina to life.

‘I make them as they were for myself, with dedication, time and so much love! Each one is unique with her own personality and style, made with carefully selected materials (I myself prepare the pure wool I use to fill them). Everything around inspires me, music, a book, a person in the street, a landscape, photography, cartoons, just a word, my life …’

By making these dolls I´m sharing all my love for handmade, also hoping that they will be forever loved.
