Hallvard - Nisse (Norwegian Elf)

Hallvard is not easy to spot, as he hikes up and down the mountains that surround his home. In his muted shades of olives, browns and golds, he blends in with the mosses, trees and leaves that he quietly passes by.

Hallvards's warm tunic is made of yarn-dyed cotton flannel. His sleeves are yarn-dyed cotton, his legs cotton velveteen and his hat is a velvety cotton corduroy, topped with an organic cotton yarn tassel. His boots are ultrasuede. Hallvard's belt is a vegan, faux leather made from pineapple (called Pinatex). This remarkable material is not just beautiful, but is also sustainably made and eco-friendly. From his belt hangs a small pewter acorn.

Around his shoulder, Hallvard carries an ultrasuede rucksack, trimmed with organic cotton ribbon and yarn, as well as a tiny glass bead, and filled with Maine Balsam.

Hallvard's face is bamboo felt. His beard is handmade from natural flax fiber (grey). His eyes are hand blown and painted German glass. He is stuffed with a combination of recycled glass pellets and organic cotton stuffing. His arms are wired and his head turns.

Hallvard is 14" tall (12" when seated), as measured from the top of his head (not the top of his hat) to the bottom of his boots.

All of our dolls are 100% vegan.


A representative of Hallvard is shown in the photo above. We use no molds for our figures. Each face is handsculpted, one at a time, which means each face is slightly different and will not look exactly like the face in the photo. This is what makes each handmade doll unique.

Hallvard comes with a "Folklore of the Nisse" story tag and a felt-covered wire back rest. This allows him to sit upright on a shelf, without having to lean on anything. Click here for back rest image. (Please note that the dolls no longer come with cedar stumps.)
