These dolls represent the traditional attire of Newari. Measuring 9 inches in height and 6 inches in width, these replicas are made of wood and cotton. The female doll is wearing a “haku patashi,” a kind of saree that is black and has red borders that those in the Jyapu community wear. The doll also has a full sleeved blouse called “thana tagu kapoya lan,” and a shawl, called “haku gacha” worn above the blouse.

The male doll wears a “lan,” which is an upper garment, and trousers called “suruwa.”
