Eco-responsible toys for Christmas

Buying less but buying better is one of the bases of minimalism but it also rhymes with economy and ecology. Buying less is, in fact, having more budget, which then allows us to encourage small companies with ethical and eco-responsible values that charge fair prices in terms of production methods, treatment of employees, etc.

Sustainable

The toys of Atelier Petites Formes are made of natural and renewable materials, made with great care here in Corsica.

Handmade

Atelier Petites Formes toys are entirely hand-sewn and embroidered. Each model is made with the greatest care, with all my passion and conviction, and slight variations make each piece unique, authentic and vibrant. They are the proof of a handmade work.
