In The Doll World podcast and Youtube channel is joined by Akari Shigeta, Director of the Doll Division VOLKS Inc. creators of Dollfie and Super Dollfie lines. This is Pt.1 and our first interview with an interpreter and we want to thank Ann for being so amazing at it. This interview is in Japanese and English. Akari shares some amazing facts about VOLKS Inc. and how it all began, from how her father built the company, which was a very popular hobby shop, to how her mom was very instrumental in bringing the dolls to the forefront. Her dad and mom continue to bring the most innovative designs to dolls that have set a standard in the doll world today.
VOLKS, Inc is about creating happiness and memories through hobbies and dolls that continue to connect people all over the world. “VOLKS” originates from the German word “volk”, which means “people” or “for the people”. VOLKS dolls are a part of you, part of your family, so much so that you are able to have a beautiful ceremony to welcome your doll into the family, which we share within our interview.
With such a wealth of knowledge, Akari also talks about her journey working within the company and how she became the Director of the Doll Division, a department that did not exist within the company before.
We have so much more for you to learn in Pt.2 of this amazing interview, so join us next week for Pt.2.
