Steffen - Nisse (Norwegian Elf)

Steffen is a bit of an amateur treasure hunter. He follows the clues in old maps and books, and has found many hidden stashes of ancient and forgotten jewels and gold.

Steffen's lush tunic is made of a beautiful organic cotton/ bamboo viscose blend, in a deep eggplant color. His sleeves are yarn dyed cotton, his legs cotton velveteen and his hat is organic cotton flannel fleece, topped with a colorgrown organic cotton yarn tassel. Colorgrown means that the soft shade of olive in the tassel grows naturally, in the USA, with no dyes. His boots are ultrasuede, as is his belt, from which hang two keys, one pewter, and one brass.

Around his shoulder, Steffen carries a sack - an intricate weave of Romanian hemp, trimmed with gold and organic cotton thread and a gold antique finished bell. It is filled with Maine balsam.

Steffen's face is bamboo felt. His beard is handmade from natural hemp fiber (white). His blue eyes are hand blown/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.

Steffen 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 Steffen 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.

Steffen 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.)
