Traditionally crafted in the small city of Takayama, these dolls are hand-painted using woodblocks. The color is fixed to the raw cotton at high temperature and each doll is then filled in with rice hulls and hand-sewn, so that every one of them is genuinely unique.
Cotton and rice hulls.
A wonderful doll, an exquisite example of Japanese craftsmanship.
