    Julien, den kleinen Bruder von Leo haben wir auch sehr lieb in unserer Familie aufgenommen. Er sieht Leo sehr ähnlich, ist aber ein ganz anderes Puppenkind. ... er interessiert sich mehr für Stifte und Schreibsachen. 😉
    Julien ist so liebevoll genäht, die Anziehsachen sind so toll zusammen gestellt und aufeinander abgestimmt und sein Haar ist so kuschelig weich. Beide Puppen-Jungs sind auch fast lebensecht beweglich, ... es fühlt sich manchmal so an, als ob man ein kleines Kind in den Händen hat.
    Ganz lieben Dank für dieses tolle Püppchen und den so lieben Kontakt.

    Dieser süße kleine Puppen-Junge wohnt jetzt bei uns und er ist einfach nur zauberhaft. So eine wundervolle Handarbeit, da stimmt und passt jedes kleine Detail. Seine Haare sind so weich und kuschelig und fallen immer perfekt. Die Anziehsachen sind sehr liebevoll genäht und farblich passend zusammen gestellt. Leo wird mir viele Stunden versüßen und zaubert mir immer ein Lächeln ins Gesicht. Ganz ganz lieben Dank für diese wundervolle Puppe.

    The doll looked cute on the picture and is even more adorable in reality. The hair is amazing - so soft. The cloth she wears is wonderful too. A lot of layers for dressing/undressing. Can’t wait to give it to my daughter at her birthday. She will love it.

My grandmother and also other members of my family were very skillful tailors. As a child I often enjoyed watching them sew. I myself have always very much enjoyed drawing, particularly people. Later I developed another passion – bonsai trees. I found it fascinating that a small copy of a larger tree can be created. And I had always asked myself how small and delicate the elves really are, who live in and protect these trees.

After attending a doll making course at my daughter‘s Waldorf nursery, I had the idea of creating these little beings myself, as dolls. In the beginning I made the dolls as small as I could, but then my daughter asked for a bigger doll, for mother-daughter playtime. So my elves got larger and cuddlier. The large elves don’t live in the garden, like their small relations, but with people, and protect them as best they can.

The large elves have lost none of their delicateness or their closeness to nature. They prefer light, fine materials, such as cashmere and silk, like to be cuddly and cozy with flannel and velvet, mohair and cotton, and love to dress like human children. They are very neat and a little vain, because they are required to look pretty for their people at all times. And of course every elf is unique and distinctive, just like every human.

My shop is called “Elfenbaum“, which means “Fairy Tree“ in English. This is the birthplace of my elves.
