This was one of those accidental discoveries – while trying to find something else, I stumbled upon Sketch.inc Instagram account and soon realized that, while curiously scrolling down the screen, smile does not leave my face.

Let me explain first – Sketch.inc is a world of kokeshi dolls with a character. Behind this interesting brand is an English based illustrator  Becky Kemp.

But, what is kokeshi doll, you might think? Originally they come from north of Japan and are made of wood – they have simple trunk and slightly enlarged round head. Becky Kemp gives her dolls a character, so in her online shop you might be able to find Ziggy Stardust, Charlie Chaplin, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Anna Wintour, Iris Apfel…to name a few.

And, just so you know, you might become a kokeshi character too, since Sketch.inc offers custom option; or you can simply order your child’s favorite character (I must admit, I did notice few Elsa’s scrolling through their Instagram account :)).

Sketch.inc kokeshi dolls are made of beech wood, hand painted  and sealed in non toxic satin varnish.

They can be a toy or a standalone peace of art and are perfect gift for kids and parents alike, don’t you think?

Ovo je jedno od onih potpuno slučajnih otkrića – tražeći nešto drugo, naišla sam na Sketch.inc Instagram nalog i shvatila da već nekoliko minuta ne skidam osmeh dok radoznalo skrolujem.

Da pojasnim, Sketch.inc, iza koga stoji ilustratorka Becky Kemp, je svet kokeši lutki sa karakterom.

Ali šta je to kokeši lutka? One potiču iz severnog Japana i prave se od drveta – imaju jednostavno telo u obliku cilindra i malo predimenzionisanu glavu. Samo neki od postojećih karaktera u ponudi Sketch.inc-a su David Bowie, Charlie Chaplin, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Anna Wintour, Iris Apfel…lista je preduga a svaka lutka jedinstvena.

I da, i sami (zajedno sa ostatkom porodice) možete postati kokeši lutka, jer Sketch.inc nudi opciju pesonalizovanja; ili možete poručiti omiljeni lik vašeg deteta (skrolujući kroz njihov IG nalog primetila sam nekoliko Elzi, moram priznati…:)).

Kokeši lutke Sketch.inc – a imaju karakterističan, tradicionalni oblik, a karakter im daje ilustratorka koja ih tako verodostojno oslikava. Izrađene su od bukovog drveta, ručno obojene i mogu biti igračka ili ukras, a svakako su odličan i poseban poklon.
