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