These heritage dolls represent a way of life not often seen in today’s modern world. Perhaps from a time when life appeared slower. They come from a time when local craftsmanship was the standard way of trading and the thought of having goods from another country was for the wealthy and few.

Each doll has been connected to a craftsperson or a museum that aims to keep the history of that time alive. In making these dolls, the creator has also discovered connections within her own family history of craftsmen and women as wooden boat builders, fishermen and weavers.
