The beautifully hand crafted designs of Boramiri are the complete antithesis of the shelves of brightly coloured plastic that fill most toy shops. Each piece is loaded with personality and is filled to the brim with an etherial charm...
The delightful range of Boramiri toys and decor are full of carefully thought out details and soft colours that will charm any child and far outlast the appeal of their flimsy toy store foes...
We asked the lovely Bora a few questions about her gorgeous designs...
What inspired you to start Boramiri?
When I was pregnant with my little boy, I looked for unique items that were not too colourful (industrial) but they are very difficult to find. I started to create small things for my son and my friends which I really enjoyed. I started having small requests here and there so decided to launch the brand with my name "BORAMIRI".
What do you love most about designing dolls and decor?
When creating dolls I am inspired a lot by my childhood. The feelings and colours and images invoke a sense of nostalgia. When designing decor I like to give them fresh touch.
What inspires your designs?
I think I'm very influenced by my dreams. This may be the legacy of my Korean culture or perhaps there is something personal in the relationship with the objects that can each have a kind of soul.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to become a doctor to please my parents but inside I always dreamed of becoming a painter like Matisse.
If Boramiri were to make the ultimate cupcake, what flavour would it be and what would it look like?
Matcha + Chocolate
