Toys – hand made by Timo

TIMO is a small design line, based in Teal- aviv, Israel, all hand-made, and each and every item is one of a kind. The fabrics are mostly recycled. TIMO is part of the EcoDesign trend, standing up for minimisation of manufacturing waste and simplification of processes.

From the author: “A small case of multicoloured threads I once inherited
A well-loved shirt, wrong sized, I couldn’t pass on for its magnificent texture
A jar of buttons, no relation to one another whatsoever
A handkerchief with grandpa's initials
An embroidered pillow cover, hole included
A romantic dress once found in a second hand shop abroad...
The desire to sew these together,
to make something new, was born of the materials themselves.”

The dolls are simply amazing, It was difficult to choose. I like Rabbits the most, and
the Bead Dolls. For me some of them are just art. The care of details is stunning.
