I’m Jodi Founder and Creative Director of Clarkes Closet, a children’s  brand handcrafting Rag Dolls and Children Accessories.

I have a background in Art and design along side Performing Arts.

I started Clarkes Closet due to the lack of diverse dolls available on the high street for my then 4 month old daughter.

As a mother I felt it was my duty to create a line of dolls that looked like my daughter and all children of colour that are and have always been underrepresented in the toy market.

My dolls bring forth confidence, empowerment, self love and self pride. They instill a knowledge that children of color are enough and that they can be and do anything they set there minds too.

My dolls help children know that there is more than one narrative to be told. Black and brown toys help children understand their story because it mirrors their own.

My goal is to change this one sided market and to make black and brown dolls a normal inclusion in the world of play.
