Hey One Piece fans! If you’re looking for something which stands out from your typical anime merchandise, then take a look at these traditional wooden dolls.
Each one is carefully crafted by hand in a workshop at Usaburo Kokeshi Inc. 株式会社卯三郎こけし, a traditional crafts company which has been operating in Shinto Village at the foothills of Mount Haruna in Gunma Prefecture since 1950.
They’re particularly known for their high-quality kokeshi こけし wooden dolls, which they not only sell domestically but internationally to 18 countries.
Their first series featured Luffy, Zoro and Chopper but now, rounding out the Straw Hat Pirates gang, they’ve added Nami, Usopp and Sanji as well. Each one is a cute palm-sized kokeshi doll that conveys the warmth of natural wood.
