Meet Frederick! A friendly, hard-working boy who loves nothing more than tending to his large kitchen garden and cooking up tasty suppers for friends. We’ve loved the work of Sophia from Studio Escargot for as long as we can remember and are so pleased to have worked with her on this special collaboration of dolls with linen clothes and soft merino wool knits – all entirely plant-dyed and handmade with the utmost care by our beloved makers in Nepal. A MITH Shop exclusive!
Studio Escargot is based in the Netherlands and was founded in 2011 by Sophia Smeekens. With an education in styling and upholstery, Sophia worked for several years as a visual merchandiser at an international fashion business. She decided to follow her heart when she realized that numbers were more valued than creativity in the workplace, and went back to school to broaden her knowledge and define her identity as a stylist and designer. Her handmade dolls and other pieces emit a certain softness, with plant dyed colors and simple expressions and a beautiful showcasing of natural materials.
