Los Musgoamigos in the window

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Our friends from Chile are in the window. I put the exhibition up yesterday and it seems the wonderful dolls by Francisca will rapidly find nice homes in Stockholm!

The dolls have their origin in traditional Latinamerican doll design that Francisca learnt from her grandmother. I love the way knowledge of the hand is carried on through generations – and renewed by using modern shapes, colours and materials. The materials Francisca uses are all left-overs from the textile industry – re-cycled traditional modern dolls!

The exhibition is in the window until November 13th, you can also view the dolls here.

Los Musgoamigos at manos

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

We received a parcel full of handmade dolls from Chile today. They’re made by Francisca Robles and are part of her project Los Musgoamigos. Now, they’re here to be exhibited at manos for a month and I’m so happy to have their company! See pictures of the dolls here.
