Little Scandinavian traditional Tomte in Red. Fluffy, felty and a touch of wood. A cheeky little tomte to add to any Christmas tree or to top off a gift. The Down The Woods Tomte range is inspired by Scandinavian festive legend that is associated with Christmas. Tomtes are Nordic mythological creatures and are said to be mischievous, solitary little spirit responsible for the protection of farmhouses and its buildings. Tomte literally means 'homestead man' and is forged from the imagination of long dark Nordic winters.
