    Brief History of Handmade Dolls

    A doll represents a character that is often human or humanoid and is frequently used as a toy for kids, particularly young girls. Around the world, dolls have also been utilised in conventional religious ceremonies. Traditional dolls are crafted of materials like clay and wood in the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Europe. The history of dolls dates back to the time of ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. They have been created as magnificent works of art and simple, primitive toys. 


    German manufacturing of dolls dates back to the fifteenth century. Dolls became more and more mass-produced due to industrialisation and the development of new materials like porcelain and plastic and gained popularity as collectables over the course of the 20th century.

     The doll-making journey

    These handmade dolls, as opposed to mass-produced dolls, are meticulously made by various artists and undergo a rigorous quality control process during manufacturing. It should be mentioned that these dolls must go through a process of gradual development to be made. Additionally, every nation has customs for creating traditional dolls, whether amulet dolls or just straightforward toys.


    Some examples of these dolls are rag, cloth, felted, porcelain or clay, wooden, contemporary plastic, etc. Traditional dolls, however, always wear miniature versions of common clothing and common haircuts, accessories, jewellery, and other folk characteristics.
