Emil - Nisse (Norwegian Elf)

Emil lives in a simple dwelling, nestled in a hemlock grove by the edge of a lake. He can occasionally be seen, enjoying the lake breezes, and sipping on the cool spring water he carries in a flask by his side.

Emil's soft pale blue tunic is made of a gorgeous woven fabric composed of organic cotton, linen, ramie and hemp. His sleeves are a pale green cotton, and his blue hat is cotton knit and topped with an organic cotton yarn tassel. His boots are ultrasuede, as is his belt, from which hang two small pewter keys.

Around his shoulder, is an old style canteen, made of ultrasuede and trimmed with organic cotton yarn.

Emil's face is bamboo felt. His beard is handmade from natural hemp fiber. He is stuffed with a combination of recycled glass pellets and organic cotton stuffing. His arms are wired and his head turns.

Emil 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 Emil 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.

Emil 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.)
