Announcement    Handmade Cloth Heirloom Dolls, designed and created by Rachel Linquist since 2008.

Just 2 weeks turn-around for custom dolls and ten years of 5 star reviews!

I LOVE making dolls just for your special doll-lover in your life to fit your exact specifications. Skin color, hair color, clothing, even special-needs modifications are never too much trouble for me to make the perfect doll for you! Everyone deserves a doll that looks like them! #RepresentationMatters

My dolls are made with the expertise of over ten years of doll making experience. Each face is lovingly hand painted with a color-fast, non-toxic, artist-quality fabric paint, creating a surface that is soft, supple, and flexible, never scratchy. I paint each face free handed, without marking the fabric first. I am an artist at heart (check out my watercolor art shop at henandchickart.etsy.com), and so each doll is truly one of a kind!

I often utilize recycled/upcycled vintage fabrics in my creations, as well as using hypo-allergenic polyfil that is made from recycled materials, making your purchase sustainable and earth friendly! The quality of my work is backed by over ten years of experience in doll making (check out my glowing reviews), and I use the highest quality materials available, which means that your purchase will be loved for a lifetime and beyond! These dolls are truly heirlooms.

Handmade Cloth Dolls

I have always loved creating beautiful things. As a child I hand sewed barbie clothes and drew horses. From playing flute as a Music Education major, to sewing my bridesmaids’ dresses for my wedding, I realized early on in my adult life (as in my childhood) that life feels richer in the midst of making something beautiful.

Everything you find in my shop has been made by me from start to finish. From sourcing the new and vintage fabrics, to sewing them together, and then packing your new keepsake in it's packaging and posting it to you, every step of the way was done by me, with you in mind, to bring a special bit of beauty to your home or loved one, and for your best life.

    Every time I make a doll, I feel a specific character emerge as I put the shiny sparkle in the eyes, & rosy up the cheeks. I think, 'Oh, there you are!' It's like that eerie feeling you’d get as a kid of your toys being alive when you aren't looking.

Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I work hard for the highest quality with each item and take great care in packaging and shipping. However, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, please notify me (via etsy "convo") within three days of receiving your item.

Returns on custom made items will be considered on a case by case basis. Please understand that often when I have custom made an item just for you, that item will be too personalized to allow me to resell it, and in that case I will not issue a refund or accept a return.

Returns will only be accepted in original condition.

After the returned item is received by me you'll be refunded with the same method with which you paid (minus shipping).
Payment
I accept payment by Paypal and Direct Checkout (credit card).

In rare cases, I will accept money orders. This must be discussed via convo before the transaction, and I will wait until I receive the money order, deposit it, and receive notifications that it has cleared, all before I will ship your purchase. Thank you for your understanding!
Shipping
In-stock items will be shipped within 3 business days of receiving payment. Depending on weight, items shipped within the US are sent at the rate for 2-3 day delivery or 3-5 day delivery. International orders are shipped using First Class International. This service does not provide a tracking number or insurance. It does provide a Customs Declaration Number that can be used to locate a lost package. Upgrade to International Priority is available upon request.

Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility to calculate and pay upon arrival. It is illegal for me to mark a customs form as a "gift", and could result in legal action against both myself AND the buyer.

Please let me know before payment if you would like to add insurance, tracking, or expedited shipping and I'll update your listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love custom orders! Feel free to contact me via convo with your ideas. Let's create something together!

Do you own a brick and mortar store and would you like to carry my items there? I'd love to discuss my wholesale terms with you!
