Still cold here… But nev­er mind, Tilde sais, putting on her cozy cowl…

ooak miniature artist bear: meet Tilde, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using original designs and best quality materials. Handmade in Germany.Tilde  is pre­tend­ing to be an old and bat­tered lit­tle bear. Stand­ing approx­i­mate­ly 6inches (15 cm), she is an OOAK bear, lov­ing­ly hand­made by Ate­lier Laven­del, using  my designs and high-qual­i­ty nat­ur­al mate­ri­als. This lit­tle soul is made with high qual­ity Ger­man vis­cose fab­ric (Oeko Test 100) from the tra­di­tion­al Ger­man man­u­fac­ture Steiff Schulte. It feels won­der­ful smooth and soft. Her orig­i­nal glass eyes are hand­made in the Lauscha glass man­u­fac­ture. I hand embroi­dered her nose with cot­ton embroi­dery floss. I used organ­ic dried wood shav­ings to stuff her body and limbs and added to her chub­by bel­ly some steel pel­lets, safe­ly placed with­in a cot­ton bag, for more love­ly weight. Her ful­ly and loose­ly joint­ed arms, legs and head are mov­able and pose able. Tilde and her cot­ton dress, dec­o­rat­ed with vin­tage cot­ton lace, are both sym­pa­thet­i­cal­ly aged, using sev­er­al tech­niques, and hand paint­ed with non-tox­ic artist oil colours. Her cowl is made with amaz­ing lace weight mohair on silk in impres­sive shades of deep red. Tilde is now avail­able here .
