All MonPilou dolls and doll clothes are designed and handmade by MonPilou.
I have learned to make traditional Waldorf dolls many years ago. Over the years, I have designed my own pattern and found ways to make the dolls of better quality and look more natural. Even though the techniques have changed, my dolls are still traditional Waldorf dolls.
They are made of natural fibres, look simple, have a neutral expression and are made, one by one, with a lot of love.
My dolls are firmly stuffed, for durability, but not stone hard. I like my dolls to feel cuddly, for children.
