Annushka Celebrates 5 Years in Business !

December 2014 sees us heading into our sixth Christmas season having set up store in September 2009. In that time over 1 million people have visited our site, allowing us to serve over 50,000 customers worldwide. Many thanks to all of you !!

All dolls made for Annushka are constructed using traditional methods passed down through generations. As every piece of wood has its own expansion characteristics, it is vital that the top and bottom sections are carved from the same piece of wood to create a lifetime fit. No measurements are made during the turning process; it is all done by eye making each set unique. The dolls are then hand painted and allowed to dry before being fitted together.
