These dolls are made of a special recycled yarn. Made in Japan by Suno & Morrison.
Suno & Morrison's Gara-bou yarn is produced by a spinning machine that reuses waste scraps and yarn fibers. The yarn is therefore slightly uneven, rustic and soft, resembling hand spun yarn.

Suno & Morrison is a Japanese brand founded by Yukino Saito, and is known for its variety of scarves, home fabrics, and jewelry made from an age-old technique of "gara-bou", or hand spun yarn made of organic cotton. Gara-bou yarn is exceptionally soft to the touch, and is made on an ancient Japanese spinning machine. Not surprisingly, the technique is in danger of vanishing completely. Through Suno & Morrison's dedication to the craft, we are able to enjoy the unique quality and texture of gara-bou through long lasting goods that bring pleasure to daily life.
