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.
