About the Dolls and the Creator
Treat yourself or a loved one to one of our completely hand-made poupee's. No two are exactly alike, and each is a wonderfully unique conversation piece for any place in your home.
Poupee means doll in French, but it has been adopted in English to describe these beautiful bean-bag dolls. The head, arms and legs are made of the finest porcelain. The dresses are tailored using the most vivid and refined fabrics, mostly silks. Each hat is a free-hand sculpture, created without the use of any molds.The accessories are designed to perfectly match the poupee's theme and colour, creating an ideal setting!
The artist, Isabelle Segal, designs each individual poupee' doll and accessory. Born in Paris in 1964, she began playing with dolls at an early age. She then moved to New York at the age of 22 and turned her obsession into a business by selling her individually designed dolls and accessories. Now you can own Isabelle's colourful and exotic poupee's. They are funny, fanciful and will make you smile every time you look at them.
