Not only does Mardi adore trawling through unique vintage fabrics at opportunity shops, but also her hand crafted toys deliver a message with names such as ‘Save the Whaley’. She also loves incorporating some ‘vintage Australiana fabrics’ into her creations, depicting Australian wildflowers and Aboriginal motifs. She is also thrilled to have started using an eco-friendly corn fibre filling in all her creations, manufactured in Australia. “I’m all for instilling some positive messaging in ‘little luvs’ about nurturing the environment, animals and human beings. There’s a wonderful synergy between education and play, so I was keen to incorporate the two.” said Mardi."
