My name is Farida. I am a doll maker, wife, mom of two, mom of autistic child and nature lover.
With my husband Elias and two boys teenagers Johnny and Raphael I live in a beautiful Greek village surrounded by mountains and hills close to the Aegean Sea. In addition to being passionate about my family, doll making and knitting, I’m also crazy about traditional music, biking and planting flowers and vegetables in my little yard. As a family, we love to travel to mountains for skiing on winters and explore different beautiful greek islands on summers.
By profession I am a teacher but my purpose and joy in life I found in crea ting and photography. Since childhood I had a lot of imagination and I loved all sorts of arts and handcrafting. In childhood I made for myself my first toys and dolls. I loved knitting like my grandmother, embroidering like my mom and sewing like my sister. All these skills brought me to doll making. Over the past 10 years I have been creating waldorf dolls. Among too many kinds I choosed waldorf dolls for beeing natural and harmless, for being warm and having sweet smell of sheep and childhood, for being able to keep company day and night, to kids and to older people. Till now nothing had lit a spark in my eyes and warmth in my heart like the joy I get from creating waldorf dolls.
