Nina, a little pupetta born from pieces of cloth…

nina2“Her body is made of natural hemp fabric, her cloak of red wool & her face sown in black cotton. Almost invisible to many, she’s sometimes filled with sweet melancholy without knowing why, other times she’s exuberant, or plays lazily with her precious little pearls, or dances the “Twist” with reels of cotton. Nina moves around, exploring Inside and Out, observing and reflecting. She asks questions bigger than herself (she’s only biscuit size…), questions forgotten somewhere. Nina exists only if you see her, and not everyone can.”

She’s created by Eloise Morandi, and shows up in different places, but the easiest way to catch her is by way of the little rag books, all hand-made  and unique, and dreamily wonderful. The level of detail is amazing.

Curious? Check out the blog ‘Nina and other little things’…

Hi Tina,
Yes, aren’t they sweet!
Again, I think it’s best to email Eloise and ask her for retailers…
