Talpa Things is a little business founded by designer and maker Darya Rudakova and Evgeniy Kirillov in St-Petersburg, Russia. They like animals and demonstrate it by creating these soft toys...
Darya sews since she was a child; for Talpathings, she draws the animals with the technical drawings from encyclopedia then she makes patterns, cuttings, embroideries, sewings with a household sewing machine and does all the finishings by hand. Every step is thoroughly executed in their little workshop.
All the materials are non-allergenic : cotton for the outer parts and it is filled with recycled polyester fibers. No removable pieces. It is therefore suitable for young children.
The whale by TALPA THINGS has many embroidery and hand finishing details... No button or any other piece that could come off. It is therefore also adapted to small children. It is the perfect soft toy discrete enough to keep in the living room !
