Meet Thea and Jannic!
Thea is an OOAK doll, standing 17 inches (43cm) , handmade by Atelier Lavendel with lots of love and attention to details.
Tha wears a Liberty of London cotton dress, stripped leggings of organic cotton, booties of pure wool felt and hand knitted ajour alpaka socks. I made her large cowl with finest sea-green colored mohair on silk thread.
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.
Theas´s special heirloom is her genuine ombre green Jade necklace. For many centuries genuine gemstones have been used for their energetic healing properties.
Jade is called a dream stone, being a symbol of emotional release and purity.
Jade is known to balance and calm emotions, it is considered a gemstone of wisdom, tranquility, serenity and inner harmony. Jade is said to stimulate balance and peace, to attract good luck and friendship. Protective and lucky when worn as jewellery.
Tiny 2,5mm Jade beads are strung here on a 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.
Jannic is Theas´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 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 and wood 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 woodlad hat is made with wool/silk and can be put off.
Thea and Jannic come with certificates of authenticity, sighned and dated.
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.
