The Story Behind Our Handmade Wooden Dolls
Xenis is the creator of some of the world’s most beautiful collectible dolls. These incredible handmade dolls are so exquisite that each doll is recognized as a stunning piece of art.
The company was founded in 1995 by Marlene Xenis who, in the early years worked from the basement of her home. Marlene was later joined by her two daughters, Tania and Jesse, and a team of highly skilled artisans.
Handmade out of a variety of woods including Canadian Maple, the Xenis team have turned their love for the arts into unique, eye catching, collectible characters. Xenis dolls are dressed in individually tailored, original, eye catching designs. An Xenis collectible doll is a real treasure that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Marlene has had an artisitc flare from childhood and was always involved in theatre and music. The need to create has always been strong in her family and the ability to create something unique and beautiful that makes a person smile and feel good is a remarkable achievement.
“By bringing together the beauty and strengths of both nature and art, Xenis creates dolls that are as magical as the moment in Tuscany when Pinocchio’s feet first moved on their own.” – Alexander Boldizar
