Himachali Dolls

 

 

The skills of weaving and embroidery have been given a new dimension in Himachal Pradesh. They have been combined to create traditional outfits for well-crafted dolls known as Himachali dolls. The dolls dressed in Himachal

style, complete with headscarves and adorned with traditional jewelry of the State, are almost perfect replicas of the women here.

Regional variations are also captured in dress and jewelry. For instance, some of them are dressed as Kulu women wearing pattus while others represent gaddinis (sheep rearing nomads).
