The story of Frida's Tierchen began six years ago in Barcelona with the birth of my daughter Frida. Maternity is for many women a transformational experience and in my case it also changed my professional path, giving life to this adventure. With a background in fine arts, turning my view on the infants’ world was a big discovery.I realized that many of the toys on the marked tend towards a strident and hyper-stimulating design, often with a poor quality.

This is how I started dreaming and creating the dolls that would accompany Frida during her childhood, giving priority to the quality of the materials and the design as a value. Living with Frida is a continuous spring of inspiration. As she grows her playing needs change, and I try to find the best solution for each stage. Being conscious of the importance of play for her development I take special care of the designs that are simple and leave space for the unfolding of creativity and imagination. By these means have come into existence one by one

Frida's Tierchen's dolls, animals and complements. Created initially for my relatives and friends they have been giving life to this project that is growing day by day, toy by toy, detail by detail. Frida’s Tierchens’ creations give priority to:

THE DESIGN

 All products are carefully conceived, with an original and timeless design that preserves the beauty without saturating the senses, giving each of them an own feel.

THE QUALITY

 The quality of the chosen materials is the basis for the confection ofFrida's Tierchen. I use natural fibers such as cotton and wool that give organic qualities and are biodegradable substances. The fillings are of polyester that originates from the recycling, without chemical transformation, of plastic bottles that permits the washing and maintenance of the dolls. Without doubt the quality of the used materials is an aspect that increases the costs of production, as it is one of the main values of Fridas Tierchen that can be perceived and enjoyed with the creations and ensures their durability.

THE PRODUCTION

 Each and every one of Frida's Tierchen's dolls and complements are handmade by myself, working each piece carefully. It is a subtle quality that the child, however, can perceive.

Today Frida's Tierchen is as small familiar enterprise with an artisan character, founded to offer beautiful and qualitative accessories for the play of our children, and with the desire to live that same quality harmonizing work and family life.
