Photo note from Hassenpfeffer:
"Halloween Special - Little People - GirlHasenpfeffer grew by another generation. Ursula Huber, Daniela’s mum, is in on the act. And for the record, she’s showing us how it’s done.
She knits these insanely intricate coats, skirts, and dresses. Simply for the fact that she knits them, they’re bespoke; however, these outfits are beyond just custom.
It’s because she works entirely free-form. That’s right; she works by feel and not by pattern. Judgment, not a predetermined shape, guides her needles. We always prided ourselves that each one of our little people acquired of a personality of its own, but we now stand in awe; the pieces she creates transform these personalities into real characters. We admit; we’ve been schooled.
In light of the incredible amount of time, effort, and creativity that goes into her knit outfits, only a select few Little People will wear them. And even though they command a premium, we’re still not charging as much as they cost. In other words, she’s doing it for the love.
Sure, they cost a bit more; however, remember this: You get what you pay for. And in this case you get a lot.
