The perfect guest to any child's tea party, these

charming 'poupéées' are the creations of Péénéélope

Naulleau. Their story began in a house filled with

children and toys, where in her small workshop,

Péénéélope was inspired to make these dolls, using

lambswool stuffing, cotton jersey for skin and

mohair yarns for hair. Like true Waldolf dolls they

are intentionally simple to foster children’s imagi

nation and creativity. Each doll is different but they

are all ready to be loved.

A beautiful doll must have an equally beautiful

wardrobe. Astrid Le Provost’s dolls outfits are

irresistible and a perfect fit for Péénéélope Naulleau’s

dolls. Produced as patterns or ready to wear gar

ments Astrid’s collection is fashioned in cotton,

linen and wool. Her outfits use muted shades and

restrained prints but seamstresses can make their

own choices. If sewing isn’t for you, her collection

is also available as ready to wear garments for both

dolls and children.

Tamar Mogendorff – her name is as distinctive as

her creations and neither is likely to be forgotten.

The beauty of Tamar’s creations does not lie in

their perfection. Her use of old linen, antique

embroidery, tweed and even newspaper coupled

with rough stitching and raw edges give them a

texture and personality that requires a certain

knowledge to appreciate. What could seem like

flaws to the untrained eye are the essence of the

appeal of these patchwork treasures.

Tamar Mogendorff’s creatures, from £75-£180 choose from a hen with 2 eggs, geese, a penguin family, small, medium and large birdhouses, a polar bear family, an owl couple, a dachshund or a greyhound..
