About the maker

Hello, my name is Anita Kingsley. All Kitty&Kin creations are designed and handmade by me in my home studio in Somerset West, South Africa.

My adventures into the world of doll making were inspired by a desire to bring my illustrated characters (mostly cats) to life, and to combine this with my love for textile design. My dream was to create a very special art doll that not only looked beautiful, but could really be played with as well. After many months of pattern development, the Kitty doll was born.

About the dolls

Each doll is made with the greatest possible care and attention to detail. They are very securely constructed from 100% cotton and are fully washable.

All fabrics, unless otherwise stated, are designed by me and have been digitally printed using a high-quality printing process.
