We, as Patti Oslo, believe in gender equality as a basic human right. Fair working conditions and women’s empowerment are our top priorities. The artisanal work behind our soft toys collection stands not only for the preservation of traditional craftsmanship but also supporting skilled women artisans with magical hands to be independent in order to achieve financial stability.
Creating items that are timeless and made from durable materials is very important for our family business. The best moment is when we see our nostalgic designs finding new homes in modern living spaces.
Every item we create should have its own personality. When products are made by hand, it makes a special gift as if it’s given to you by your grandma. Our skilled women artisans with magical hands lovingly make each piece, using traditional techniques. Each handmade item is truly unique and carries the individuality of the artisan who made it. By choosing our products, you are supporting their craft and valuing their time and effort, which helps to build a sense of community and appreciation for handmade items.
We consciously create our products that are meaningful and valuable, each item is a labor of love.
Meet the Makers
The story begins with after I realized I couldn’t sit and crochet my creations with my two hands any longer. I did some research and reached out to an artisan mother in Turkey, and together, we initiated a workshop with the goal of training a maximum number of women possible, and offering them the opportunity to learn and earn. Day after day, we were receiving more orders so that we could reach more women and encourage them to be self-sufficient. We contacted the craft workshops provided by municipalities and connected with the teachers there. We found artisans who were already skilled in crocheting as well as those who were interested in learning.
We now have a team of around 30 talented women artisans, whom we are proud to be able to work and support them in their journey towards financial independence. It's not just the products we create, but the social impact we're having on their lives and the communities they live in. Without them our project would be impossible. Their attention to detail and care is what makes our products very special. We hope to continue expanding our team through ethical and sustainable work practices.
