Sofia - Nisse (Norwegian Elf)

Sofia comes with a felt-covered wire back rest. This allows her to sit upright on shelves, without having to lean on anything. Click here for back rest image. Please note that the dolls no longer come with cedar stumps.

We use no molds for our figures - each face is handsculpted, one at a time, which means each face is different. This is what makes each handmade doll unique. While the faces of the men elf dolls do vary a little, the faces and the hair of the lady dolls vary greatly from doll to doll, so each lady doll's face is photographed individually.

Sofia lives closer to the village than many of her nisse friends and relatives. It is not unusual to see her heading into town to visit friends, wearing her most festive attire.

Sofia is wearing a yarn-dyed cotton flannel skirt, and a linen and organic cotton blouse. She has an organic cotton apron trimmed with ric-rac and organic cotton yarn, with an organic cotton sash. She has a linen/ramie shawl. She has beige cotton velveteen legs, and is covered with handstitched patches. She wears a hemp and organic cotton french-terry knit hat, topped with an organic cotton yarn tassel. A gold glass bead necklace completes her outfit.

From one arm Sofia holds her bag, made from an intricately woven Romanian hemp material, and hand embelished with tiny silver glass beads, an organic cotton yarn bow, and a glass teardrop bead. It is filled with Maine balsam.

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

Sofia's face is hand sculpted using felt over clay. Her eyes are handblown/handpainted German glass. Her hair is made from natural flax fiber (grey) or natural hemp fiber (white). She is stuffed with a combination of recycled glass pellets and organic cotton stuffing. Her arms are wired. All of our dolls are 100% vegan.
