Natural best quality organic materials, original designs. Handmade in Germany. Jen­nifer is an ooak nat­ur­al fiber art doll by Ate­lier Laven­del. She wears sun­ny yel­low pol­ka dot­ted dress, dec­o­rat­ed with orig­i­nal Ger­man antique West­phalian cot­ton lace, white-red stripped leg­gings of organ­ic cot­ton, undies beneath, orig­i­nal antique Ger­man cro­chet cot­ton socks and booties of green and white felt, made of pure wool. I made her large cowl with finest off-while mohair on silk. Jen­nifer has black eyes, which are made of Ger­man hand made glass. 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 doll´s clothes are remov­able and wash­able.
John is Jennifer´s lit­tle bear. Stand­ing approx­i­mate­ly 5 inch­es (14cm), he is an OOAK vin­tage style weight­ed artist bear, lov­ing­ly hand­made by Ate­lier Laven­del, using my designs and high-qual­i­ty all nat­ur­al mate­ri­als. This bear is made with high qual­ity vis­cose fab­ric from the tra­di­tion­al work­ing Ger­man man­u­fac­ture Steiff Schulte, which gives him a love­ly well much loved vin­tage appear­ance. His orig­i­nal glass eyes are hand­made in the Lauscha glass man­u­fac­ture, Ger­many. I hand embroi­dered his nose with cot­ton embroi­dery floss. I used organ­ic clean sheep wool to stuff the body and the limbs and added to the bel­ly some steel shot, which is safe­ly placed with­in a linen bag, for more love­ly weight. This bear is hand paint­ed using non-tox­ic pas­tel colours. HIs ful­ly joint­ed arms, legs and head are mov­able and pose able.
HIs cowl with a vin­tage rose and tiny bell on its top is made with wool/silk and can be put off.
Jen­nifer comes with a cer­tifi­cate of authen­tic­i­ty with all the details about her, which is signed by me. I intend­ed this doll and the bear as a lit­tle trea­sure to dis­play or as a spe­cial heir­loom toy to an old­er child for gen­tle play. Jen­nifer and J0hn are avail­able here.
