More about Kokeshi

Genuine Unique Artworks, Handcrafted with Collector's Value

There are many styles of Kokeshi dolls. What they all share is the simple basic form, usually with a cylindrical body and an oval head. For the handcrafted Kokeshi from art studios, woods are carefully selected. The interior of the woods plays a significant role in the selection and must match the region's distinct carving style. Only then can the naturalness and the feeling of genuine warmth shine through. The character of each figure is shaped by the wood, the carving process, the form, and, of course, the painting. This results in expressive small or rather large figures with personality and charisma, ranging from monks to joyful flower children.
