As a child I was constantly surrounded by tatty stuffed companions who counselled me through the highs and lows of growing up. Through Gracie Keal I wanted to create that cherished friend for others.
Graduating in Printed Textile Design, I knew I wanted to join the slow factory movement; valuing tradition, technique, quality and sustainable practice. Gracie Keal dolls honour all of these. Creating an item that will not only be liked but loved and kept.
