Mibo's Eclectic Offering

Mibo are a lovely company I've been following for a few years now. Founded by designer Madeleine Rogers, they began with some fabulous printed lampshades, and have grown to offer a small but perfectly formed range of diverse products, from cut-out paper animals to tile stickers, all designed by Madeleine with her individual, folky Mibo style.

The thing that makes Mibo stand out from the crowd for me, is that the designs take an original step forward. They could make a stuffed fox, but for all you sew and sews, they've designed a tea-towel which you can use just as it is, or cut up and make a fox yourself. Equally, what's so great about paper animals? the point is in the making, the cutting and the sticking. Far too good to leave it to the kids.

Each year I have bought their beautiful calendar downloads, and even downloaded the most brilliant valentiny card, a 3D paper owl in a crate with love message to deliver. I highly recommend you sign up to their mailing list to be kept in the loop about these special exclusives, this years calendar is beautiful.
