Mauvais Marie is the range of quirky and lovely toys handmade by Elsa Boucinha. The dolls making experience started two years ago, when Elsa had her first baby and tried to create some funny & playful plushes. “I had never sewn a button before, but soon found out how hard it could be! After a lot of punched fingers and failed experiments, I started to have some control over the result of my creations, and a lot of fun. My home was invaded by colourful fabrics, whimsical sketches and little bits of thread.”
All the characters’ inspirations come from de La Fontaine fables, but also from other famous stories featuring animals. To discover more about these artisanal toys, visit Boucinha’s website.
