Hello,

My name is Amy Cloud. I started my journey to making dolls as a consumer. I wanted to find my girls an alternative to the plastic dolls that line the shelves of most stores. I was so inspired by a group of five women that are making beautiful cloth dolls that I wanted to give it a try myself.

Hello,

My name is Amy Cloud. I started my journey to making dolls as a consumer. I wanted to find my girls an alternative to the plastic dolls that line the shelves of most stores. I was so inspired by a group of five women that are making beautiful cloth dolls that I wanted to give it a try myself.

The smell of wool, the beautiful yarn, the way they come to life in my hands. the spirit and soul that they have from the love, natural materials and the one of a kind nature of being handmade, and the best part is, this is my work.

My inspiration and many great ideas come from my children. They love the whole doll making process and want to help in any way they can. I always ask their opinions because they are the experts on being kids. If you find little notes in your boxes, it is my little ones saying the goodbyes to a temporary member of our family.

My purpose for making these dolls is so that they can become cherished friends for children, to make scary dreams a little less scary, to bring warmth and snuggles thru the night, to be a part of hours of play and to share in everyday adventures.

I thank you for your interest in Malula Dolls,

Amy Cloud
