Kerstin and Benjamin

I want you to meet Ker­stin and Ben­jamin, both good friends and joy­ful play­mates. Ker­stin is an OOAK doll, stand­ing 16 inch­es, hand­made by Ate­lier Laven­del with lots of  love and atten­tion to details. Ben­jamin is a tiny wood­land baby, which loves to play with Ker­stin above  all.
The last day they have heard, the first spring flow­ers were already there, so they went look­ing…

Ker­stin wears an organ­ic cot­ton fab­ric dress with cot­ton lace and rick-rack  edge, pants of organ­ic cot­ton jer­sey and undies, a grey and pink pol­ka dot­ted cot­ton under­skirt beneath,  a cowl cro­chet with lace weight mohair, light as a feath­er and won­der­ful soft. Her shoes are cro­chet with plant dyed pure wool. Benjamin´s cloth­ing is made with cot­ton velour, he can hap­pi­ly put off his green cowl, made with amaz­ing Done­gal tweed. A tiny sil­ver bell is safe­ly fas­tened on its top. His tiny airy blan­ket is amaz­ing­ly light. It is made with lace weight moss green mohair wool on a silk thread. His cosy car­ry bag, where he is often sit­ting  is cro­chet of gor­geous wool/mohair/silk blend. The tex­ture of this pouch car­ry is so rich and tasty,
I tried not to add to much, I left it free of every influ­ence,
just pure joy for the fin­gers to touch and for the eyes to look at.

Ker­stin her­self has a cosy bag of her very own. It is made with cot­ton fab­ric and cot­ton velour and can be used as a stor­age bag for both friends dur­ing the qui­et times, or just for gift-giv­ing. Ker­stin has blue eyes, which are care­ful­ly hand embroi­dered. Her hair  is made with mohair, cro­cheted into a cap. Her braids are fas­tened on both sides of her head, they can be  restyled and gen­tly combed. This doll has a neck, ears, a bel­ly but­ton and a sweet bum.  She can sit nice­ly.
Her head is soft sculp­tured of card­ed clean organ­ic sheep wool. Through the safe 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. My dolls are stur­dy and have free mov­able arms and legs. All Kerstin´s clothes are remov­able and wash­able.
