Hi, and thank you for taking the time to stop by "Jumatamade"
My name is Jurate, I'm a toymaker and live in a beautiful small country Lithuania near the Baltic sea (Europe).
In my shop you will find adorable dolls, soft baby/toddler toys to play with and to love, decorations for your sweet home.
Over my children, I got to know about rag dolls and also how to manufacture them.
All my dolls and soft toys are made with lots of love, care, and precision. I do love to make things with my hands and I love to work with natural quality materials. For making my toys I use my own patterns and take natural best quality materials only, such as cotton, linen, silk, satin, wool fabrics. I work in my small and cozy home studio, pet-free, and smoke-free. Here I create my unique dolls, lambs, cats, bunnies, bears, birds...
My inspiration is the beautiful nature around me (I love forest walks, blooming flowers, the gorgeous lavender smell in my flower garden, the feeling of the quietness of the high morning sky, sunsets) and my loving family, which inspires me again and yet again to my new creations.
Each item I create has its very own character, its personality, and is unique.
And I believed that each toy I create has a tiny soul. How could it not? It will always amaze me to see a piece of fabric become something you can hold and admire and sometimes adore. When creating a doll, the look can change immensely just by the fabric chosen, making each doll unique. This is a wonderful process for the designer in me.
I just hope that my dolls and soft toys can give to their new friends so much joy and love, as I have made them.
I hope you enjoy looking through the toys and decorations in my shop.
Enjoy your stay at the Jumatamade!
