Of Unusual Kind
"Of Unusual Kind is an eclectic collection of paper dolls designed to inspire imaginative play and vivid make-believe. A beautifully handcrafted respite from technology, Of Unusual Kind is a celebration of paper craft, exquisite pattern and unique, individual style. Inspired by the cherished tradition of paper dolls yet adorned with Anja Kroencke’s whimsically modern, hand-illustrated clothing and accessories, the collection invites you to dress up and endlessly explore. Each time you add a new doll to your collection, you can mix and match from each wardrobe, creating infinite new looks. Mini metal brads are used to assemble the dolls and allow for playful movement.
The paper dolls were born when Anja’s eldest daughter was home for weeks, recuperating from a concussion, with electronics of any kind forbidden. The two of them spent hours drawing and crafting and creating stories. And so, Of Unusual Kind was born. Each doll and every single piece of her wardrobe are hand illustrated, printed in the United States, and hand assembled with care in NYC."
