What makes the brand unique ? All of our products focus on the story of Sara, a doll from Brooklyn who travels to Paris to see her older cousin Juliet. Along the way, she makes friends with all sorts of other toys. These characters are featured on our products. We are committed to providing unique, hand-crafted, locally-made products to our clients that combine our interests in French and Japanese design. This ethos attracted the Walt Disney Company, and we are now working with them to produce beautiful Mickey & Minnie and Winnie the Pooh products.
How many pieces per collection ? No seasonal collection.
Main materials used : For T-shirts 100% organic or green materials. Accessories: Canvas, printed cotton, gold, silver, plastic charms.
Your trade show planning for next season? We are attending the fall editions of Playtime Paris, Playtime New York, Playtime Tokyo, the New York International Gift Fair, and Maison & Objet.
Plans for the future : We are expanding our line of Disney products by adding Aristocats, Bambi, and 101 Dalmatians to our lineup. We have revamped our online store so that it now includes international shipping—we eventually want to expand our store into a brick & mortar boutique.
