Regular price $58.75

Item #

Motanky, traditional handmade Ukrainian cloth dolls, have held a place in children’s hearts, as well as serving as oberehy (good luck charms) for the home since pagan times. The colorful clothing is adjustable and removable, the pysanky are authentic, blown eggs, and clothing is hand-embroidered in cross-stitch. For the face, there are only crossed threads. This ensures that the doll is impartial, and will not cause mischief! The mother and child doll is typically given to mothers to be. Other dolls are toys or protectresses. There will be variation in fabric and color; each doll is unique and special, with her own personality. Approx. 7” high, presented in a clear gift box. Made lovingly in Ukraine by merited artist Tatiana.
