Laura Mirjami is a Finnish born designer maker, who has been living and working in the UK for nearly 20 years. Her animal characters are all designed and handmade using mainly 100% wool felt.
Felt is naturally eco-friendly product and it is wonderful to work with. It has a slight stretch which suits perfectly my style of making which combines carefully cut parts that are then stitched and stuffed to create animals’ unique shapes.
Laura draws a lot of inspiration from her childhood in Finland and the whole of Scandinavia. She believes if you let your imagination run free and never accept the world for what you just hear or see, you’ll discover how everything truly comes alive.
