Hilary Jean Tapper

Heirloom Dolls


Handmade, eco-friendly dolls made to inspire the adventurous, delightful and wonder-filled child within each of us. These sweet, soft friends sit beautifully at the bedside table, bookshelf or desk to watch over our day and remind us to fully embrace, love and express our uninhibited self.


How Hilary Jean Dolls are Made

Each doll is sewn on a foot-treadle Singer sewing machine using natural materials - cotton and linen, and stuffed with local New Zealand wool. The doll's cotton skin is dyed using organic, fair-trade tea, and their faces are hand-embroidered. Every doll is made by Hilary Jean in Christchurch, New Zealand. 


Choosing Your Doll

Make selecting your doll a special moment - pour a cup of tea and nestle down to have a look at the different doll types available, read their story and intentions and see which resonates with your heart. Feel free to contact Hilary Jean for any special requests or questions regarding your selection.
