Vitiligo is a condition that causes light-colored patches on one's skin. For kids with the condition, getting a doll that looks like them is often difficult.
One artist named Kay Black is therefore creating dolls that "have vitiligo" to cater for such kids.
She shares pictures of her unique and custom-made dolls on her Instagram page, @kaycustoms.
Kay is putting her talent into considerate use and is winning praise for it.
She paints the skin of her dolls with intricate patterns inspired by images of women and girls who have vitiligo.
In an interview, she said: “I love what I do and take pride in each custom design!”
