I had a unique chance to learn about these dolls made from recycled materials from my grandmother, who was then a folk master. I like the idea of finding a use for the old material and also the amazing art therapy power they have.
As a believer and supporter of the circular economy, my particular belief is that creativity will provide the shortest route to achieving it.
