The handmade resin toy collection is dressed in 100% crin made in collaboration with Marcela SepĂșlveda, an artisan from Rari, a town located in the Andean foothills 300 km south of Santiago, Chile.

"The tradition of horse hair weaving is a technique passed on from generation to generation for the last 200 years. The horsehair is washed, dyed, and woven by hand."
