ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

The design behind this year’s Christmas Collectibles came from the designer Alfredo Häberli's childhood Christmas traditions.

“When I was a child, a Christmas tradition was for my family to get together at our grandparents’ hotel. We had a fantastic time, and coming from a Swiss-German family we always had a real fir tree, although sometimes it felt a little strange in Argentina in the middle of summer, without snow. We had many other traditions, such as singing, playing instruments, decorating the tree and giving presents. I thought about which object represents Christmas for me: a star, a glass bauble, the three kings, Santa Clause, and an angel”.

“I looked at the concept and function of the collectible, and I decided to focus on the angel. I created different sizes, shapes and I made some decorative holes symbolizing snowflakes or starry skies. If you look carefully, the angels are part of the Alfredo Collection. They have a twist, which will hopefully make you smile and warm your heart. If this is your reaction, then I have succeeded with its purpose!” - Alfredo Häberli.

In addition to the traditional red ribbon, the mobile comes with a special dark blue ribbon.
