The simplicity and uninhibited charm of Primitives seems the embodiment of children’s unpretentious drawings and is undoubtedly part of their enormous charm.
Primitive Dolls remain a popular and recognizable style in modern doll making. Yet despite their ordinary, rustic look, the primitive cloth doll is believed to be one of the most difficult to achieve. Enormous attention to detail is important to give them an authentic old, worn and grubby appearance, whilst others are given the classic appearance without too much aging and wearing embellishment. Today antique, tribal and whimsical folk dolls all fall into this 'primitives' category.
