Dalia Karü

Boris Borquez, founder of the artistic toy studio Dalia Karü. In Venice, Italy, he learned to work on a maché wood technique with the construction of masks. When he returned to Chile and fused this technique with others that he learned as a toy collector. The result is a line of objects inspired by the toys from the XIX century.
The technique that Boris occupies today involves different disciplines such as carving, modeling, painting and illustration.

“It was my desire to collect dolls that let me to make them. After a very disturbing dream I began to collect curious and antique toys, and then I began to look for toys makers, where I met only a few exponents in Chile. That's how I started to make my own line of toys, always with the dream of re-establishing  the handcrafted toys in the country”.
