Meet the maker Deborah de Lloyd

I graduated from Southampton Institute of Higher Education in 1994 with a BA (hons) Fashion degree. From there I became a costume designer and maker in TV and theatre. I design and make costumes to perfectionist standards and have a good reputation in the industry.

I have recently decided to branch out into soft toy-making from children's drawing as it is a fun an constantly stimulating challenge to me. It is also great to know I've brought a bit of a child's imagination into the real world.

I make items to the highest quality to resemble the designated drawing as closely as possible. I also ensure they are non-toxic and safe to the best of my knowledge. I also believe strongly in sustainability and recycling and will use materials that come from those sources.
