Creative Inspiration For Creative People
A good friend of cr3ative inspiration is Favela Hoodies who create stunning hand stitched hoodies and tote bags made from fairly traded materials.
Meet Marie, the business owner, designer & maker of these funky hoodies. Marie has always had a passion for fashion and a trip to Brazil inspired her to create her brand, Favela, named after the Brazilian slums that she came across. The Favela shop was opened in St Ives, Cornwall and became very popular, however Marie now runs Favela from her home county of Warwickshire and regularly trades on market stalls in the heart of England.
Favela offer a wide range of funky designs and if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for, Marie will create a design of whatever you like from scratch, before hand stitching the design onto your chosen colour and size of hoodie or tote bag. She also personalises the hoodies with names on the back, each letter carefully hand stitched onto the hoodie or bag.
Some design ideas for your handmade hoodie or tote can be found on the Favela site. You can choose from animals, girly designs, monsters and aliens, boys designs and seaside designs, but if there’s something you want that you can’t see, just use the contact page to order anything you like!
