When I thought about what special holiday gifts to include in my holiday 2013 guide Fournier was a perfect choice. All items are handcrafted in Bolivia made by organic materials Baby Alpaca & Pima Cotton.
“For Fall Winter 2013 I was Inspired by our beloved Paris and the magical forest. I have created a collection of soft friends, creatures & pillows each with their own very unique personalities,” Anabel Fournier.
Back in August at The Playtime New York Trade Show, I had the pleasure of interviewing Anabel Fournier who founded her brand in the summer of 2004 as a poverty alleviation project while living in Bolivia. These same artisans continue to handcraft Fournier’s fashion-forward, eco-friendly collection of clothing and accessories including soft friends, creatures, and pillows.
A wonderful addition to any room, these Mountain Gnomes are truly unique soft toys. Each with their own personality, the Mountain Gnomes come in three color schemes and feature a tall hat, crochet beard, and mustache. Price – $58.
For some fun room decor how about this Apple Tree, featuring a striped top with a solid trunk and red crochet apples. Price – $69.
Another cute keepsake and decoration piece from the magical forest collection is the soft charcoal toadstool with a charcoal or red cap, mutli-color dots and a cute crochet butterfly. Price – $64.
My personal favorites are these two charming magical forest characters. The perfect little friend, Lucas is finished crochet buttons, a thick scarf and has embroidery on tail, and legs. Price $52.
And then there’s Luca’s buddy Pepe complete with finished crochet buttons and a striped tail. Price $52
This is just a small selection of the wonderful handcrafted gifts that Anabel said are popular items at her online store. You’ll find even more handcrafted gifts and clothing at the Fournier Online Store.
