This is Ekta. He is lovingly handmade from naturally dyed wool and waiting to join your collection. All MJ & Me hand-felted artwork and collectibles are exclusively available online at craftedbymjandme.com or through one of our select distributors.
Ekta is given the vital task of carrying or relaying messages, recipes, lists, and notes. Like all gnomes, Ekta carries important items tucked into his coat or hidden underneath his long beard.
Gnomes have a very keen mind, which can store information much more efficiently than a human's. For this reason, gnomes learn languages within weeks, remember detailed facts about very mundane things for hundreds of years (a healthy gnome lives to be about 425 years old), and can relay multiple detailed messages and facts verbatim at any moment.
In addition to letters and messages, Ekta also carries morsels of nutritious food inside his coat and under his beard. From time to time, he will encounter a gnome or animal that has gotten so busy with their work, that they have forgotten to eat. This is why he always carries extra acorn hearts and grass seed biscuits which are easy to pack and keep for long periods of time on the trail.
Ekta is 321 years old, considered middle-aged. He wears a light grey colored coat and the traditional forest mushroom-colored (dark orange) cap.
We take pride in making sustainable gifts and decor inspired by nature. It is our hope that these gnomes will spark the imagination of your inner child. Each item is made by hand with lots of love and a little bit of magic. We hope you love them as much as we do.
All gnomes arrive with a bookmark telling their name and unique story. Each gnome stands 4.5 inches tall and is completely unique, as each is made by hand. Please allow up to 7 business days for your gnome to be made by hand!
PLEASE NOTE: cats and dogs (and other fur babies) are attracted to the natural oils they can smell that remain on the wool, and if given the chance, any healthy pet will want to chew up or shred your MJ and Me collectibles. So, keep these items out of pets’ reach.
