Hello! My name is Katya, welcome on my online shop dedicated to japanese Kokeshi dolls.
The idea of "KokeshiShop.com" was born during one of my online research regarding handmade dolls and puppets.
So, when I saw the first Kokeshi doll made by a japanese craftsman I loved it immediately as I loved its meticulous workmanship, noble materials with which they are made (normally for each doll three types of wood are used), decoration and painting. And, of course, even the meaning: Kokeshi dolls are bearers of good omen against bad luck.
When I received my first Kokeshi doll directly from Japan and I saw it, I decided that I'd like to sell them also in this part of the world, to let them know a little more. So, in January of 2014, I changed my life, leaving my old job and creating this store. And it was great! It is great!
I am very glad to followed my love for handmade cultural objects and I hope that you like both the Kokeshi dolls and this my little shop.
Thanks so much!
