I have made the patterns for the Dålls and their clothes myself and everything are homemade and unique for Dålls.
Dålls are made in an animal free, smoke free environment.
I don't want to makea living out of my Dålls, it's a hobby. I just figured that if I loved making them and someone else would love having them - why not? So my motivation is just trying to make something fun and wonderful and hope that someone else will love them when I can't hord them anymore.
My goal for me as a creator is to evolve as a creative person, listen to myself when I need a break, make new awesome stuff, learn new techniques and have a lot of fun!
My goal for Dåll is to make Dålls with a variety of personalities, skin colors, hairdoes, disabilities, gender expressions, styles and details. I want my Dålls to enable, support, strenghten and empower people everywhere!
My goal for my production is to use secondhand and vintage fabrics and details as much as possible and reuse old cardboard packaging for sending. Even my packaging tape is recycled plastic! Because: environment.
I am 28 years old, live in Trondheim, Norway and love to make stuff with my hands! Since I was a kid I have always loved to create little personas in paper, drawing, and clay. To make them in fabric is even better.
This is not my daytime job though, not even a job actually! In the daytime I'm working at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway.
Dåll was launced in Januray 2017.
Dålls are my original design an can NOT be used to mass produce or create copies in anyway without contacting me and making an agreement.
Dålls are not CE-tested and can therefore not be called toys, even though they are somewhat tested for loose items. They fit best to display in the kidsroom or for gentle dress up and for more grown children/grown ups.
