My Menagerie’s pieces are all designed and handmade by the sole designer/maker Caitlin, in her Blue Mountains studio. Each piece is hand-stitched, made from a natural, durable & soft merino wool felt and filled with an environmentally-friendly toy stuffing, made locally in NSW from recycled water bottles.
Caitlin takes inspiration from animal encounters in her childhood, exploring Tasmania’s wild places. Native animals and birds are well-featured. Her designs are also influenced by her time living in Japan, with her hand-stitched detailing an ode to “sashiko”.
