Our new video shows how we make towel dolls in the Käthe Kruse factory in Latvia. We start with the finest soft fabrics, then precisely cut the patterns, sew the components together, and add the final touches .
Towards the end of August our thoughts turn to school and preparing our children for a new grade. Each year they, and we, get a little wiser from this process. The owl is a wisdom symbol and here we show several owl toys.
Dolls in the Waldorf style have long been a part of Käthe Kruse. The Waldorf faces are neutral to allow a child to imagine any emotion for the doll. They are always handmade from natural materials like cotton and wool and according to the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. His research and philosophy, early in the twentieth century, provide the framework for Waldorf education.
