We are just like you’.
The Mel and Steff rag dolls tagline says it all.
Our philosophy at Mel and Steff is to create little people that resemble children from all walks of life, spanning across the globe, across a multitude of ethnicities. Lovingly handmade, each little doll encompasses features that not only represents, but celebrates the beauty of diversity.
Mel & Steff™ play dolls are handmade with meticulous attention to detail, right down to their cute little button nose.
Each textile doll is individually cut, sewn & stuffed. Faces are hand drawn & then embroidered with the finest of stitches. Yarn for hair is wrapped around the template, then cut & sewn, ready to be attached by hand to the doll. Outfits are cut & sewn individually.
At Mel & Steff there are no factory lines. Each doll is handcrafted by skilled artisans. Therefore, our cloth dolls are just like little people, some cheeky, some cute and no two are alike!
Mel & Steff is a ethically run small business following fair trade practices. Please read our story in About Us!
