CHILDREN'S TOYS : HANDMADE BUNNIES BY BIMBOM
BimBom… An intriguing name for charming handmade bunnies. Who are they? What is the story of these beautiful soft toys and their tender universe?
Behind BimBom lies a generous and kind hearted designer. It was initially for her grandchildren that Renata started creating bunnies. Once retired, encouraged by her daughters Eva and Dorota, she decided to pursue her passion. She launched her own brand to spread joy not only among her family but to children worldwide.
Self-taught, she never took sewing classes but has always been attracted to fashion and fabrics. She actually studied textiles and weaving. As a child, she would spend hours watching her mum sew and knit. As a teenager, she delighted in following couture shows and cutting silhouettes in magazines. Once she became a mother herself, she began making her own clothes, those of her children, then her grandchildren and eventually bunnies…
The very first time Léna and Emma set eyes on them they said “Wow, Granny, they look like bimbom” as they touched the pom poms on the hat! And thus was found the brand name.
Each bunny is handmade by Renata herself. With their party hats, colourful pom poms and elegant outfits, they are real fashion icons. Liberty of London floral prints, cotton, linen, silk : it is truly the fabrics which make the BimBoms so special.
Indeed Renata does not draw the designs or make preparatory sketches but lets the fabrics guide her. Their texture, colour and weave give birth to the models. They are the ones creating the characters. She also finds inspiration in the world of theatre, circus, ancient photographs, cartoons and of course haute couture.
Making others happy and bringing smiles to the world is what drives her! Through her enchanting universe, she beckons us to play and dream!
Created in her hometown in Poland, she is also committed to keeping traditional European craftsmanship alive.
Lovingly handcrafted, the BimBoms bunnies are a perfect birthday or new born gift, charming nursery decor but above all companions for life. They will soon become your little ones’ closest friend following them on all their adventures. Like a doll, children can dress and undress them and create a full wardrobe.
Wishing to celebrate the magic of childhood and to promote young European brands, Charlotte sy Dimby is proud to be Bimbom’s very first partner.
