Spotlight- Ei! Kumpel

By day Margarida is a biologist, currently working on Environmental Toxicology. Yes a scientist! A far cry from the world of felt crafting!

Margarida says:

“I love to craft because I like to create things without rules and limits. It’s amazing when I imagine something in my mind and then I’m able to create it.

It also transports me to wonderful and quiet places! It’s like a spa…”

Margarida loves to travel, exploring new places and cultures.

All her designs are unique and original, so it is no surprise that much of the inspiration for her felt creations come from microscopic organisms.

Margarida makes very few pieces of each design, which attracts young trendy customers that like originality in their style. These delightful felt creations are vibrant, funky and nearly always multi-coloured.

Mr Comma is a particular favourite (pictured above) He was the first plush that Margarida designed so it has great sentimental value. He is super fun, bright, colourful and very cute indeed! He will make you smile and will make the perfect stocking filler this Christmas!

Waiting for We Make Christmas?

A selection of these fabulous items will be available at We Make Christmas, and in addition, Margarida will be making some christmas decorations specially for the occasion, which are not to be missed. There will also be some exclusive products made for the event, so watch this creative space for some really special Christmas items. Oh joy!

Can’t wait for We Make Christmas?

Margarida is currently busy designing a new A/W brooch collection. The colours are somewhat unusual for the season, and will feature dark red, mustard, purple, a lot of grey and dark blue, mostly.

Ei! Kumpel is available online through her etsy shop and more information on a lovely little blog here:

These unique pieces are bundles of soft fun and endlessly cheerful. They really are handmade funky felt treats, making them ideal gifts for the season to be jolly!
