#CREATOR: VELVET MOUSTACHE

  1. Can you tell us a little bit about your craft and how you found your niche? I studied Fashion Design and one of my friends asked me to make a plush toy for her. It ended up sparking an interest in me and I decided to explore the possibility of making handmade plush toys and pillows. I wanted to create an environmentally conscious company that people could trust. It took me about 2 years to design and develop Velvet Moustache and make it the company that it is today. This year we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary!
  2. What inspires your work? My inspiration comes mostly from animals and trends. I began by making well known Canadian animals like the owl, deer, fox, and polar bear, and slowly expanded to more exotic animals like the chinchilla, koala and our latest is the flamingo. We also go with what is trending at the moment, which is why we designed the pug, unicorn and sloth.

  1. What are you most excited about in working with eBay on this capsule collection? My team and I are excited to work with eBay Canada as it gives our product a larger platform for exposure. We’re also curious to receive feedback from Canadians! As eBay is a global marketplace, it offers Velvet Moustache a wonderful opportunity for expansion.
  2. Any advice for aspiring #creators? Surround yourself with people that will support you and that will help you grow. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and stay true to yourself.Velvet Moustache #1
