Kokeshi


The Kokeshi is a traditional Japanese doll. Carved from wood by skilled artists, the kokeshi is thought to have spiritual significance representing the wish for a healthy child. This design by Jenny McWhinney captures the innocence and simplicity of the kokeshi in vibrant coloured wools.
What makes design so unique is that it incorporates the skill of wool felting to create the crisp white faces & rosey cheeks of the dolls, & the delicate cherry blossoms by their feet.
