Grannas - Cuddly Dalahorse 20 cm
Cuddly Dalahorse 20 cm
Traditional wooden Dala horses were originally made as toys but Grannas now make these lovely soft and cuddly Dala horses which are perfect in little hands. The decoration on this soft plush Dala horse is completely appliqued and embroidered, so there are no little parts to come loose or fall off.
The story of Grannas today
The production of Dala horses at Grannas today is a peculiar mixture of a genuine hand craft and serious production. In 1939 just over 20,000 Dala horses were produced –nowadays approximately 100,000 are produced each year, with only a couple of planers and three band saws. Visitors are surprised when they see the production volume the company has in comparison to the number of machines and how much hand work is put into the making of each horse. Every Dalahorse is "double" unique - they can identify the carver and the painter!
