In 1997, Brooklyn children’s-book illustrator Cozbi A. Cabrera began making one-of-a-kind fabric dolls with delicately painted faces and hand-dyed dresses. The collectible muñecas, inspired by Cabrera’s Honduran heritage, now have a cult following and have even appeared on Oprah. In 2004, Cabrera opened this Court Street shop, applying her attention to detail and distinct aesthetic to women’s and children’s clothing. The airy, vintage-furniture-filled boutique has cheerful yellow-and-pink walls and a canopy bed covered in handmade keepsakes like appliqué baby bibs and heirloom pillows for newborns. The expertly tailored women’s silk blouses, gauzy peasant tops, pencil skirts, metallic minis, and seasonal jackets are made of natural materials like wool flannel, camel hair, voile, sheer wool, and chiffon, and are feminine without looking frilly. There’s also a cabinet of colorful jewelry by local designers like Fort Greene’s Baubles & Thorn—plus a few of Cabrera’s famous dolls.
