The story of the little ladies – Povestea domnisoarelor

When my friend showed me „the little ladies”, I suddenly burst into tears. It was an emotional meeting in depth. I knew she was working passionately her craft and knowing Oana (I mean Pippa), I expected to be surprised. But the result of her many months of autodidact work, trials and errors, dedication and perseverance – astonished me. I felt a mixture of love, pride, cuteness, but mostly joy. The joy of my inner child awakened, caressed as if the little ladies were a gentle, healing universe. That second I missed my childhood badly. A million emotions and sensations came to my heart. Pure delight. I wondered: if I am feeling this, how a little girl must feel when embracing a little lady?

A little lady is the perfect gift for a girl or for a grown up because of its delicacy, because it cherishes our inner child and because of the fabric and execution quality. The unique handcrafted dolls are made only from the best sustainable materials someone can get: linen, Australian wool, cotton. All 100% natural. No trace of plastic. These fashionist dolls are a great example of craft mastery and respect for the children receiving them. When a child cuddles a wool stuffed doll, she experiences a sensation of warmth and softness like hugging a human being. The little lady would inevitably become her best friend.

Ok. I know you want to meet them. So here are the little ladies…

So grateful and proud to know Oana and learn from her a lot. She is the perfectionist behind the little ladies. The perfect details are her standard in everything she does. All the dolls available are the flawless ones. You will never see one that its creator considers imperfect as shape, color, materials or facial expression.

I know that if I had one of Pippas little ladies back in my childhood, I’d adore it, I’d tell her all of my issues nobody could understand, I’d learn to be a good listener and a true friend. I would also learn about beauty, art and mastering my craft.

Cand prietena mea mi-a prezentat domnisoarele, am inceput sa plang. A fost o intalnire foarte emotionanta. Stiam ca lucra cu pasiune la proiectul ei si cunoscand-o pe Oana (adica Pippa), ma asteptam sa fiu surprinsa. Dar rezultatul mai multor luni de munca autodidacta, de incercari si esecuri, dedicare si perseverenta m-a uluit. Am simtit un amestec de dragoste, mandrie, dragalasenie si mai ales bucurie. Bucuria copilului din mine trezit deodata, mangaiat de parca domnisoarele ar fi un univers bland si vindecator. Brusc mi s-a facut un dor nebun de copilarie. Am simtit un milion de emotii si de senzatii. Pura incantare. Ma intreb: daca eu ma simt asa, cum se simte o fetita cand imbratiseaza o domnisoara – a little lady?

Domnisoarele sunt cadoul perfect atat pentru fetite cat si pentru adulti datorita delicatetii lor, pentru ca au grija de copilul din noi si pentru calitatea materialelor si a executiei. Aceste papusi unicat sunt facute manual din cele mai bune materiale disponibile: in, lana merinos australiana, bumbac. Totul 100% natural, fara urme de plastic. Papusile cochete sunt un exemplu de maiestrie si de respect pentru copiii care le primesc. Cand un copil tine in brate o papusa facuta din lana simte o senzatie de caldura si moliciune de parca ar imbratisa un om. Papusa va deveni inevitabil prietena lui cea mai buna.

Sunt mandra s-o cunosc pe Oana de la care am invatat atat de multe lucruri. Ea este perfectionista care a creat aceste minunate papusi. Detaliile perfecte sunt standardul ei in tot ce face. Papusile disponibile sunt doar cele fara nici un cusur. Nu veti vedea vreodata unele pe care ea le considera imperfecte ca forma, culoare, materiale sau expresie a fetei.

Stiu sigur un lucru: daca as fi avut o astfel de papusa in copilarie as fi adorat-o, i-as fi povestit toate problemele mele pe care nimeni nu le putea intelege, as fi invatat sa ascult si sa fiu o prietena buna. O astfel de papusa m-ar fi invatat si despre frumusete, arta si despre ce inseamna maiestria.

Pe Pippa si pe domnisoare le poti gasi pe site-ul de unde poti cumpara una si poti afla mai multe detalii despre cum sunt facute, pe Instagram si pe Pinterest.
