Anne and Ben

Meet Anne and Ben, two autumn travelers. Anne is an OOAK natural fibers art doll, standing 14 inches (36cm), designed and handmade by Atelier Lavendel with lots of love and attention to details.

Anne wears a light blue dress of orgnaic European linen, decorated with sparkling embroidery, stripped leggings of organic cotton beneath and booties of pure wool felt with pompoms to hold her feet warm. I made her cowl with finest lace weight mohair in the colour of the mysterious November mists, to close with vintage Scotch brooch featuring a safe guard Celtic cross and runes writing around it.

The  hair of this natural fibers art doll 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 heavily 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.

Anne´s special heirloom is her genuine Coral necklace. For many centuries genuine gemstones have been used for their energetic healing properties. Coral is said to ward off bad thoughts from others and promote general well-being. Protective and lucky when worn as jewellery. Tiny 2,5mm Coral beads are strung here on a genuine silk cord with the ends left decoratively to fray. This necklace is to close securely and comfortably with a magnetic silver metal closure. It is 7 inches long, so that it also would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or young woman.

Ben is Anne´s little Sailor bear. Standing approximately 5 inches (14cm), he is an OOAK miniature artist bear, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using my designs and high-quality natural materials: German mohair, glass eyes, wood wool and clean sheep wool. This bear is fully jointed and weighted.

I intended this doll and her  bear as a little treasure to display or as a special heirloom toy to an older child for gentle play.
