Perfectly Imperfect Dolls

The driving philosophy behind Perfectly Imperfect Dolls is to create traditional heirloom type ragdolls, with untraditional, modern styling in order to better reflect people in society of today. But more importantly to do this using only natural fibre stuffing, natural fibre fabrics, and upcycled fabrics and trims, etc. Just as generations of other women did prior to the creation of polyester, as this is better not just for us humans but also for the planet we inhabit. Our rag dolls embrace many of the daring, the unusual, the anything goes, no rules apply type aspects of todays society in their features and personalities. We have deliberately designed our dolls this way for the purpose of fostering imagination and individuality and encouraging a celebration of shared humanity. It is also with an aim to promote the sociological concept that humans should be seeing and appreciating our 'sameness' (ie. our shared humanity) THROUGH our differences and discouraging societal conformity and homogeneity. Our Dolls are designed to be made almost entirely of naturally derived products, and to have as low environmental impact as possible. This is why ALL our dolls 'skin' fabric is always a natural fibre fabric: unbleached hemp, organic cotton, unbleached calico, or linen and wool offcuts from a local interior designer (yes even the Rainbow Spirit Dolls!). Those fabrics are all not just easily obtainable and reasonably priced, but also hard wearing, practical, and of course, the most untreated and natural. That is also why we generally do not offer our dolls in 'skin colours' other than "unbleached untreated natural" fabric colour (apart from our deliberately extreme rainbow spirit dolls, whose fabric we dye ourselves). As we always aim to keep our prices as low as we can without compromising on our eco friendly, low impact and natural ideals. But please feel free to email us about making dolls in fabric shades other than 'unbleached/untreated natural'. Perfectly Imperfect Dolls started in 2017 with needing fabulous and original birthday gifts for a handful of little girls, and finding nothing quite right in any stores anywhere. So i decided to make something myself - rag dolls! By the time it got up to making the doll for the last of these birthday girls, the basic shape and style you now see was cemented, and 'Ani' became the official founding toy of the Perfectly Imperfect Dolls rapidly growing family. 'Ani' was a huge hit with her new 5yr old human BFF and in fact has been snuggled with every single night since...And she is not the only one! There are many other humans, both adults and children alike, all over the world, who also now go to sleep with toys from Perfectly Imperfect Dolls.
