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!

In the Workshop

Like many businesses, the busiest time for Hazel Village is fourth quarter — AKA, the holidays. When we visited, the shop was prepping work stations for maximum efficiency as the gifting season approaches.
