Walking through Brooklyn this rainy weekend we came across a wonderful shop. Coszbi is filled with handmade dolls, and beautifully designed clothing for children and adults as well as quilts and home wares. Coszbi is owned and created by Cozbi A. Cabrera, who left full time art-directing to realize her dream of making handmade cloth dolls and illustrating. The dolls, called munecas in honor of her Honduran heritage, are jointed and made with new and individually sourced vintage textiles. They are all individually constructed to order in brown, black or raw linen with meticulous attention to detail using techniques such as beading, hand rolled hems, hand-dyeing, embroidery, and hand painting.
