KnechtRuprecht is taking a short break.
We are on Holiday. We will be back on 7. August 2015.
Knecht Ruprecht is dedicated to handcrafted Waldorfdolls for any occasion and for almost every age. Since my own Waldorf schooling, I have created handmade dolls from natural materials. I believe in the importance of dolls and dollplay and it is a great pleasure and honor for me to create these important little friends. All types of dolls I offer are proved and tested by my own little children and suitable for daily use.
All my dolls are stuffed with organic wool. The cotton skin of my dolls is approved in accordance with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 certification. This swiss made high quality cotton fabric is used and approved since years for the purpose of waldorfdollmaking. It is very resistant and allows a long lifetime of all dolls I make.
Custom orders are welcome. Please look through my sold items or visit my blog for inspiration. http://knechtruprechtdolls.blogspot.com
"Play with dolls is of special importance because it is one of the ways through which the child can externalize his own inner being."
Rahima Baldwin Dancy, You Are Your Child's First Teacher
"As the child nurtures & mothers the doll, he is not simply metaphorically, but also in reality caring for himself. It is important therefore, that we offer a doll that closely resembles him/her, not so much in features but rather in proportion. The child's "felt experience" of the doll will remain with him/her. So let's keep the doll simple, proportional & tactilely truthful."
Words by Shariffa Oppenheimer in regards to Waldorf dolls.
