Brothers: Leonard and Anton

OOAK artist bears: meet Leonard and Anton, handmade by Atelier Lavendel using high quality original materials.

Meet Leonard and Anton! Standing 6 inches (18cm), they are ooak artist bears, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using my designs and high-quality all natural materials. Handmade in Germany.
This bears are made with antique style Schulte viscose and hand painted with non-toxic artistc pastel colours, which gives them a lovely well much loved vintage appearance. Their original glass eyes are handmade in the Lauscha glass manufacture, Germany. I hand embroidered their noses with cotton embroidery floss. I used wood wool to stuff the bodies and the limbs and added to the bellies some steel pellets, which are safely placed within a linen bag, for more lovely weight. They have full jointed arms, legs and heads, which are are movable and pose able. Their cowls are made with Donegal tweed and  can be put off.
I intended these bears as a little treasure to display or as a special heirloom toy to an older child for gentle play.
ECO friendly.
Dry clean only.
Handmade in pet- and smoke- free home.
SAFETY NOTE: I recommend this bear for collectors 6+  :   )

I want you to meet Cleo and Moni. Cleo is an OOAK doll, standing 16 inches (40cm) , handmade by Atelier Lavendel with lots of  love and attention to details. Moni is her little friend.
Cleo wears a blouse of vintage cotton fabric to fasten with two handmade waxed wood buttons and hand made loops. Beneath she wears knickerbockers of cotton velvet, legwarmers of up-cycled cashmere knit and undies. For her crochet cowl with a tassel on the top I used wonderful plant dyed wool yarn. Her cosy shoes are made with pure wool felt in fuchsia and grey.
Cleo has brown eyes, which are carefully hand embroidered. Her hair  is made with hand dyed and hand sewn weft, crocheted into a cap, it can be  restyled and gently combed. This doll has a neck, ears, a belly button and a sweet bum.  She is weighted and  can sit nicely. Her head is soft sculptured of carded clean organic sheep wool. Through the inner armature in her neck the head is slightly movable, gentle but most expressive gestures and expressions are possible.  The body is firmly stuffed with 100% organic pure wool; the “skin” is of high-quality 100% cotton interlock from traditional Swiss manufacture. All seams are double-sewn for more durability. All Cleo´s clothes are removable and washable.
Little Moni stands just 4 inches  of sweetness. She has brown eyes and hair of DollyMo mohair, which can be restyled and finger combed. Moni´s clothing is made with cotton velour, she can happily put off his cowl and his bonnet with a wool felt leaf on the top, both is made with plant dyed wool.  Her tiny airy blanket is amazingly light. It is made with rose  mohair on silk thread. Her cosy carry bag, where she is sitting,  is crochet of gorgeous wool/mohair/silk blend. The texture of this pouch is so rich, I tried not to add too much, it is just pure joy for the fingers to touch and for the eyes to look at.

Cleo and Moni are now avail­able here .
