One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, right? This is definitely the case for Sonia Singh, an Australian mother, who began a beautiful and inspiring story of the Tree Change Dolls. It all started when Sonia rescued a collection of high-fashion dolls from op-shops and tip shops around Tasmania. She transformed these dolls by removing the factory paint from their faces and repainting them with a more down to earth style. Sonia also collaborated with her mother who knits and sews the dolls’ clothes, and the results are incredibly charming.
It’s so inspirational to see old and used products being rethought in such simple yet enchanting ways. This story has made us think twice about what we purchase and what we throw away.
