Paola Reina was first established in the doll making region of Spain, Alicante, in 1994. I first discovered them in 2008 but at the time the range was small and the minimum order was high, so I waited. Last year I saw how far the company had come since receiving their catalogue for the first time all those years ago, and their catalogue this year is the best yet. So we placed our first order in 2014 and it was very hard to choose from so many gorgeous dolls.
What makes Paola Reina extra special is that they support European manufacture and all the dolls and clothes are made in Europe using European materials. The dolls are sculpted in Germany; the hair is from Germany, Italy and Spain; the fabrics are from Spain, Italy, England, France and Portugal; the dresses are made in Spain; the designs are from Spain, France and Germany, with the ultimate assembly and hand painting and finishing in Spain. European manufacture is more expensive than in the Far East but Paola Reina succeed in keeping costs down due to their knowledge, their relationships with suppliers and their reputation.
