Yesterday was a busy day in NYC. I had to meet a client at a showroom. Then went off to 2 trade shows and ended the day talking with my embroidery guy about a project. The highlight was a small international kids trade show in Soho.
Really, really small companies showing their products. It felt a little like an etsy exhibition. The exhibitors' products were mostly made by themselves. So gentle and soft. Made from the heart.
Soft sculptures from h-luv.
Completely hand embroidered, Coral and Tusk's pillows make for some interesting bed time stories...
Jess Brown dolls show some real attitude..
I don't recall who this next vendor was, but love the whimsy and what a great take on the tutu..
The last vendor was a Japanese transplant to Brooklyn, her company Atsuyo et Akiko is less than a year old and is thriving. Decoupage is her main medium. We had a nice little chat.
Have you seen a softer step stool?
A welcome relief to see these handmade products. The show was like a breath of fresh air..
