Small Springtime Kokeshi Doll
We think the delightful Small Springtime Kokeshi Doll or Haru yo Koi Sho makes an ideal token of love and friendship for your family and friends, especially at Easter!
Kokeshi Dolls were originally hand carved by farmers in northern Japan as tokens of love and friendship for their family and friends. Kokeshi have developed from a simple toy into a modern craft and are now recognised as one of the traditional folk arts in Japan. These beautiful, brightly coloured wooden dolls are irresistibly cute and combine a typically simple yet stylish Japanese design with a distinctive, contemporary feel.
From a collection of Japanese kokeshi dolls we feature that are largely handmade from cherry or mizuki trees using traditional methods and usually feature girls' faces and gorgeous floral designs. Every doll is given its own name by the craftsman who lovingly created it ensuring that every kokeshi doll radiates its own individual spirit!
