The 'FRIDIS' art toy collection is a Kickstarter-backed release and consists of 3D-printed dolls that are handpainted by Mexican artisans. Modeled in the likeness of famed painter Frida Kahlo, the toys celebrate tradition while embracing modern manufacturing techniques.
After noticing a decline in traditional artisan jobs across Mexico, the creative team behind FRIDIS wanted to preserve the artform with a project that involved and enriched their community. Once they are 3D-printed, these Frida Kahlo-themed figurines are each given a one-of-a-kind paint finish -- reflective of the Mexican artist's vibrant aesthetic and use of spirited prints.
Marrying classic Mexican craftsmanship with modern 3D printing techniques, the FRIDIS art toy range is vibrant, authentic and educational, making it intriguing to both children and adults alike.
