This series of matryoshkas (which also includes the HanFu Chinese doll from my last post) was inspired by these culture's ultra feminine costumes and their wrapping and draping of luxurious fabrics.

Is there anything more feminine than the traditional sari silks of India? The beautiful fabrics and colors rich with the spices of their culture. Truly intoxicating. Indian cuisine is one of our family's favorites too!

I first learned about the Tuareg people in an article years ago. The women's fingers were stained with indigo from dyeing their fabrics. I have always found them fascinating. When researching I found many beautiful indigo blues, purples and reds in their clothing.

All 3 matyoshkas are now available in my shop! :)
