Nicholas Bear Cub Doll
Nicholas likes to be prepared. For instance, what if he is up in the Far Meadow, and he finds a good harvest of acorns but he has no wagon to carry them? That is why his wagon is always bumping along behind him. He says it's worth the extra effort. Plus it is shiny.
Nicholas is made from tan organic cotton fleece. His ears are lined with natural cotton muslin. His face is hand-stitched with cotton thread.
Nicholas's romper is a collaboration with Winter Water Factory. It's made from soft organic cotton and it closes in back with velcro.
Nicholas will travel to you in a cozy muslin bag, scented with a lavender and mint sachet. If he gets grimy you can hand-wash him and he will air dry.

Hazel Village started in 2010 as a creative project by maker and designer Jan Van Cleef. One day she made a toy that she would have liked as a child out of scraps in the front room of her apartment in Brooklyn. She started making more for friends and started listing her dolls on Etsy, each with its own little outfit and back story. In the years since, she has expanded her business by finding responsible makers and never sacrificing heirloom quality at a reasonable price. Hazel Village is named after the American Hazelnut tree: a source of delicious nuts, magical divining rods, useful twigs for basketry, and food for caterpillars.
