Made in Fair Trade:
When you buy a PEPPA® doll, we of course hope that you do so because you like these pretty dolls. A lot of special attention has been paid to the design and to the choice of materials.
However, there is more: PEPPA® dolls are manufactured in Fair Trade, i.e. produced in a way where ‘honest’ trading relations with the producers are the main issue. Fair Trade stretches far beyond excluding or avoiding child labor. After all, the mere fact that children have not manufactured certain products does not automatically imply that they have been produced in humane conditions (by adults) or at fair prices.
Origins of “Waldorf” Dolls:
The typical Waldorf doll is made from sheep's wool and cotton knit fabric. It has a unique inner head, which gives form but not detail to the face. The origins of this type of doll come from a strong European tradition of doll making. Germany was the leading doll manufacturer in Europe in the 19th and early 20th century, dominating the doll market at home and abroad. Many dolls and toys were made at home during long winter months with materials that were at hand - wood, sheep's wool and cloth scraps.
However, dolls still continued to be made at home and the simplicity and charm of these formed dolls stuffed with sheep's wool ensured their survival despite the plethora of more sophisticated toys.
