These fun and typically Swedish wooden horses are made by two lesser-known but particularly talented craftsmen in Holmestad, a small village in Sweden.
The more than eighty-year-old Karl-Erik cuts, scrapes and sands every horse with a lot of patience and attention, after which Maud Stiller (58) paints and signs them by hand according to his own motive.
The Holmestad horse (Holmestadhäst) can be called the little brother of the Dala horse (Dalahäst). This Swedish horse is less known but has that little extra in design and beauty.
No mass production but an honest product made with a lot of love and craftsmanship.
Great as a gift for yourself or someone else!
