Olaf small 3D wing


Olaf would look great with the 3D-wings, we said to each other. So here is Olaf Small 3D-wing – making use of the dramatic dark blue wire and beads in the halo. Stylish and classy with white feather dress, and approx 12 cm tall.


Olaf means ‘the ancestor’s heritage’


Vleuel is the Afrikaans word for wing – and that was precisely the main feature for this beautiful range: The wings. They are crocheted in various colours, using fine coated copper wire, and the shape of the wing is also different from any other of the angel family members. The Rietbron crafters are in charge of the Vleuel angels, since they are the crochet experts at the Angel Factory. They are also the masters behind the 3D-wing, which we often call «the Gardi wing», because Gardi was the first angel to have this crochet 3D-wing, which now have become a signature feature. In 2023 we have introduced this 3D-wing in a smaller version, staying true to the fabulous Vleuel angels colors.

And if you wonder why the name is Olaf? Some years ago a group of Norwegian musicians visited the Angel Factory, giving concerts and running workshops for the children in the communities. We all really enjoyed this and wanted to name an angels after one of the musicians, to remember a very nice happening!
