High quality of Japanese Doll
Our Japanese dolls are all hand-crafted using authentic material. The making of the head, planting hair, painting the face (makeup), are all hand-crafted. Also, the costume (Kimono) is hand-crafted too, it is absolutely amazing. The costume was specially made for the doll. To make a costume for a doll, the pattern has to be small design (not able to be the same as for humans to wear). The doll wears many layers of beautiful kimonos with different hand-made patterns.
