CARPATINA was created in 1996 by Mihaela HINKLE, who was born and grew up in a small community in the heart of the Romanian Carpathian Mountains. Her story is the one of many people that left their country to pursue their dreams of a better life in USA. Mihaela studied fashion design, apparel and textiles engineering but her big love is "history".

The CARPATINA Dolls line was created in 2002. These beautiful dolls are made of high quality vinyl and stand 46 Cm tall, perfect for play or display. In addition, they have sleeping eyes and gorgeous long hair that can be styled and restyled. It's also a very affordable collection of fantasy historical clothing, done in rich fabrics and finely detailed, that is distinctive and highly appealing.
