These doll torso forms are made by the prestigious torso maker from Japan, Kiiya (キイヤ).
The company’s outstanding detail to the craft of dress forms was described in Dollybird vol. 32, in the Dolly Pattern Workshop 18, hosted by Sawako Araki.
During that issue, we got a look at how the company constructed a variety of forms.
