Handmade by Vari

Hi! I’m Vari, creator of @handmadebyvari. After graduating from @royalacademyofdramaticart, I worked as a dresser, costume maker and head of wardrobe on a number of productions in the UK and internationally, most recently on “The Wedding Singer”. I’ve always loved making gifts for my friends and family using fun, high-quality fabrics, and during lockdown I decided to turn that love into a small business!

I make traditional rag dolls with a modern twist, and I love using fabric in a range of patterns and colours to ensure that each doll I make is completely unique. I also make face masks, reusable gift bags, lavender pouches and fabric bunting.
