HERSIN MEANS BY HAND
Niki Grigoropoulou and Giorgos Tsonis, an environmental scientist and a mechanical engineer have been living and working together since 2011, creating products and services for the engineering industry. Motivated by their son’s birth, their engagement with the world of toy making, marked the creation of “hersin means made by hand”, in 2016, aiming to provide children with creative toys, handmade with much love and attention to every detail. In their workshop, in Kalamata, pieces of fabric are formed and turned into unique, everlasting toys – adorable girl and boy ragdolls and cute plush animals such as dolphins, swans, elephants etc. Wooden decorative items complement their collection with for example the bird nursery mobiles in beautiful lush colours. All products are exclusively designed and handcrafted by them, using natural materials such as cotton, linen, wood and recycled materials such as leather. They aim to design and produce items of the highest quality and safety standards. Up to date techniques are combined with traditional methods, for an end result they hope you love as much as they do.
