Palomita rag dolls

These beautiful Palomita rag dolls are handmade from organic, tea-stained muslin fabric and dressed in vintage, new and recycled textiles. Each doll is completely unique, has it’s own special character, and is made with a lot of care. The doll’s faces are embroidered and look so, so sweet. Really the kind of doll that would look adorable in the arms of a little girl, but would also make a lovely decoration piece. Such a gorgeous gift!

Yes, I know the Jess Brown dolls! They are beautiful.
These rag dolls are beautiful in their own way… Let’s hope the world is a big enough place for lots of gorgeous handmade rag dolls! 🙂 xxx

I would have to agree with Florence in Paris. While these are cute, I feel they are way too close to Jess Brown’s dolls. Sure she didn’t invent rag dolls, but hers are so distinct, that when I saw this post I first thought of Jess Brown, then I thought they looked a bit off.
To do a doll so close in look, is just not right 🙁

I was really surprised when I read about the Palomita dolls. They are a total rip off from Jess Browns which you have blogged about. I saw them surface from Etsy , but I did not think an established branded website like yours would also promote rip offs. As a doll designer myself this makes my heart sink.
Yours sincerely

Hmm. I don’t know. I think it’s a complement if one is inspired by another artist. It’s hard to be completely unique these days. While I do see where there are resemblance .. elongated limbs and the eyes… I also see that the pallet is different; blush and flesh tones, and the energy is different. It seems to be it’s own style to me. More girly. Jess Brown looks more scandinavian to me. Anyhow, we all have our opinions. I think these dolls look lovely.
