I remember once I was snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef and I saw a Ray. Wow, what a fish, what a beautiful moment, how quiet and powerful. When many years later I saw Emiko’s Rays, very carefully consciously made I couldn’t resist. And I’m very happy to see the same fascination in the eyes of the kids that appreciate it. These are the very last pieces.
Emiko had the wonderful idea in 2010 to make “different”, cooler, but above all completely safe stuffed animals. Since then they have been at home in many children’s and living rooms all over the world. And the number is growing all the time: Because the colourful, cuddly friends are popular everywhere and are often bought as a birth gift or even as a design object for yourself.
And in case you were wondering about Emiko’s name, yes, your next cuddly toy will be half Japanese and half Austrian because the Vienna-born designer has Japanese roots.
