THE ARTISANS – Anikó Katona and Edina Halmai
Already during the felting course we were both fascinated by the versatility of wool, this wonderful natural material. It can be worked into thick blankets, soft cushions, light shawls, modern hats or dresses, footwear or even unique jewellery. What had we also noticed that apart from toys very few things were made of felt for babies or small kids. This gave us the idea of creating cute and special baby shoes from this lovely material.Although our own children are bigger now (and they used to wear baby shoes knitted by their grandmothers), we wanted to offer today’s baby generation some shoes made of a natural material that is easy to handle, aesthetically pleasing and is unlike anything else.Creating the suitable shapes, colour schemes and decorations was an exciting and joyful process but we still keep working on new ideas to expand our portfolio.
