Meet Aine and Momo! Red for fire and green for hope. Aine here is a small person with lots of temperament.
Aine is an OOAK natural fibers art doll, standing 16 inches (40cm) , designed and handmade by Atelier Lavendel with lots of love and attention to details. Aine wears a sleevless petite fleur cotton dress with antique Westphalian cotton lace, stripped leggings of organic cotton beneath, booties of pure wool felt and hand knitted alpaka socks to hold her feet warm. I made her large cowl with original Donegal tweed yarn to close with matching vintage Scotch brooch featuring tiny sparling green rinstones.
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.
Aine´s special heirloom is her genuine red 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.
Momo is Aine´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 natural materials. This bear is made with high quality mohair 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 and wood wool to stuff the body and the limbs and added to the belly some steel shot 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 woodlad hat is made with ethicaly mae wool/silk blend yarn and can be put off, as well as his lace weight mohair cowl and a handmade locket featuring a vintage picture of a little girl safely put behinde glass.
Aine and Momo come with certificates of authenticity, dated and 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. This doll can be hand washed in a basin with a mild soap. Because of her delicate hair I recommend that doll only to be spot cleaned as long time as possible. ECO friendly. Handmade in pet- and smoke- free home.
