Doll avaThis is a fine collection of motanka dolls from Reshetylivka museum, Poltava region of Ukraine. Motanka doll is a traditional Ukrainian toy made from yarn and fabric. It is a little bit similar to the famous American rag doll, but motanka is usually produced without any sewing. These particular dolls are dressed in folk costumes of Ukraine. All the woven and embroidered garments are real but tiny, just like jewelry pieces, headwear, and other accessories. It’s a great tradition to make such motanka dolls for kids.
