Him Creations

I was born in Japan where I was raised in a creative family. I have always really enjoyed creating things with my hands and with my imaginations. I started making creatures with clay in 2004 and I really enjoyed seeing peoples happy face when they saw my creations. I taught myself how to do needle felting in 2007 and then shifted more and more to using wool rather than clay in my work.

I started to sell my unique, hand made felt creations on October 2008 from a table I shared with my friends at a craft market . I took it seriously and started my own brand since 2009.

Since then I have continued to expand my range of creations and attend many markets and stores to sell my creations.

In my work , I use my imagination to create characters, creatures, animals...in my way. Needle felting is technique of my choice because I love the result of softness and warmth. Once felted, the piece speaks to me. It’s a great feeling to give life to fluffy wool.

I strive to make creatures that are born to be loved by someone and bring big smiles to their face.

Needle felting is simple but not easy process. It takes a long time and requires a steady hand. I poke some wool with a felting needle, a kind of barbed needle, many, many times. The more I poke the wool becomes harder, more compact and starts to take the desired shape. Different pieces are then joined together and the new creature is born.

I taught myself how to felt. It was difficult in the beginning but with each project I learn more about working with this warm material and I enjoy the process of discovery.
