Handmade retro tomte doll

35.00

This tomte doll is a product of my imagination. A mix of a Finnish/Scandinavian tomtenisse (tonttu), an elf and a garden gnome. He is a Christmas decoration or if treated well, a guardian of your home and family for the whole year (however I can not be held responsible for what he decides to do if he moves into your house...).

I make the dress from vintage Christmas table cloth, usually Scandinavian. The mittens are made of linen and the tomte wears a jersey scarf. A tomte measures about 60 cm from tip to toe (23"), has embroidered eyes and a little mouth. He is stuffed with polyfill. 

Please note that the fabrics that I use for the dresses (and sometimes for the socks) are used fabrics that can be faded, which in my opinion adds to the charm. I try to avoid the stains though!

Do contact me if you need more details about the looks of your favourite tomte before your purchase!
