Nanchen Dolls have been caringly handmade in North Hesse since 1983.
At the beginning of the 1980s, founders Nana and Peter Sendke were not able to find the high-quality dolls they wanted for their own children. They started making their own dolls following the example of the Waldorf Education Dolls.
Soon after their first attempts and with a lot of skilled handicraft, the colourful world of unique Nanchen Dolls started to develop.
Still today, they stay close to the origins of Nanchen Natur and make careful and contemporary design additions. Nachen has a team of 15 employees working from home or in their little factory. Nanchen dolls are hand-stuffed and the faces are hand-painted which gives each doll its own special character.
