|Welcome to Little Bohemians by Zolala!|
Here you will find my custom Blythe dolls, modeling irresistibly charming costumes and hats that were lovingly designed and made especially for them - often inspired by the Edwardian Era, 'La Belle Époque', and 'Haut Bohème'.
The girls are a bunch of free spirits, and my artistic muses. I hope you love their enchanting fashions as much as I love to create them! ♥
My shop Zolala! opened in 2006, and what started as a hobby is now my full-time home business.
I draft my own patterns, and try to be creative and original in my designs. I take great pride in the quality of my work and attention to detail, and continually strive to improve my skills. It helps that my little models are ever so patient :)
The shop features a collection of my Little Bohemians brand made-to-order items, OOAK outfits and hats, and limited editions.
(Obviously, my girls are not for sale!)
My inspiration comes mostly from old-fashioned things: vintage photos and postcards, illustrations in antique books, traditional folklore, costume dramas and historical shows. I'm especially fond of (childrens) fashions from 1910-1940. Shapes and styles from the Edwardian Era, but also anything 'Bohemian' and theatrical. I like doing research on peddlers, tinkers, nomads - and dream up flamboyant, colorful ensembles and millinery that my own little traveling vendors would sell along the road side.
In Fall 2018 I will also introduce the Vagabond Strays: miniature pets and pull-along animals by Zolala! - Enchanting little wool sculptures, solidly needle felted with the most loving care and attention to every tiny bit of detail.
All members have their own personality and unique charm, and are sure to spread joy wherever they go. They make perfect companions for Blythe, or any other doll similar in size - and delightful collectable figurines for all animal lovers to display.

Additional Notes and Disclaimer
Little Bohemians fashions are made with loving care and great attention to detail, and always have my Zolala! label on the inside. They fit Takara, Licca and Pure Neemo S bodies.
All fabrics (particularly the hand-dyed) are thoroughly washed before use, and most finished items are gently re-washed, to prevent them from staining, and -often- to achieve a more worn look. But please keep in mind that it is not recommended to leave any dark or vibrant colored clothing on your dolls for a long period of time.
Due to the inevitable differences in monitor settings, the fabric colors shown in the photos may differ slightly from the actual colors.
The Vagabond Strays felted wool sculptures are not toys, but miniature works of art made for the discerning collector. They are not suitable for small children.
Many, many hours and oodles of love go into making each unique representative of the Vagabond Strays come alive. However, they are by no means perfect, as they actually originate from my Little Bohemians, a troupe of free-spirited, travelling vendors that sell handmade clothing and (pull) toys along the road side.
So they use what they have on hand - scraps, bits and bobs, found objects.. materials that are often stained and distressed, or show other marks of age and wear. Please understand this is intentional :)
