Imesha Doll

These unique dolls were made in collaboration with Selyn, an organization in Sri Lanka. Designer Alexa Lixfeld worked with children in Sri Lanke and the dolls are based on drawings that they made that were then transferrred to hand woven, 100% cotton fabrics, and printed with non-toxic dyes using fair trade standards.
They just make me giggle.
