Unless your heart is made of pure ice, it’s hard not to let out a little squeal (even if it’s internally) over the creations of Hazel Village. The work of owner Jane Van Cleef, the business sells adorable, huggable fleece dolls inspired by the mystery and magic of the woods. There’s a bustling workshop and store in Brooklyn — click through to see inside!

Made With Care

The process of physically creating a Hazel Village doll is two-fold. The dolls are constructed from organic cotton fleece and hypoallergenic polyfill and made in an organic-certified, fair labor factory in Noida, India. They make the long journey to Brooklyn, where they are dressed with loving care (we observed — and even did this — ourselves).
