Why is my shop named Wassupbrothers? Well, it’s easy! Because I make little soft brothers and sisters for brothers and sisters. 🙂
I live in Russia, Moscow with my beloved husband Igor – a photographer who always supports me and helps me with the lovely professional photos for my shop. We also have two wonderful companions – two dogs, who tirelessly give us unconditional joy and positiveness every day.
Over the past 10 years I have worked in different kinds of art: illustration, painting, fashion. But, lately I’ve been stuck on the soft art toys. They give me the opportunity to use all the skills and creativity that I have accumulated and bring me much joy and pleasure. I started making them seriously in the beginning of 2012. I create my softies without patterns, just taking the pieces of cloth and watching how they evolve.
I really love making things with fabric. I try to repurpose, recycle, and reuse different materials as often as possible. It’s magical to see how small pieces of fabric, vintage buttons, sweaters or old dresses turn into soulful creations. Mostly I use natural fabric and fibers. If I am not satisfied with the fabric color, I dye it with natural dyes like tea, coffee, cinnamon and others. I’m vegan and do not use natural fur or leather.
