Sincere and wild.
"If I were a doll, how would I want to be?"
At NunoZoo, we think that every human being is unique. In that spirit, each NunoZoo creation is born as a one-of-a -kind handmade item. We respect and play with oddity, mismatches, and disproportion, suggesting harmony in new and surprising ways.
We say "yes" to loving art, and "yes" to loving the Earth.
We use predominantly recycled materials; fabric scraps, used items, and dead stock- for our creations and shipping. Small but mighty, our Nuno animals can be a creative solution to reduce fabric wasting of our current economy.
Our name NunoZoo comes from two words;
Nuno means fabric in Japanese, and zoo as a place full of diverse inspiring animals.
Playful little finger puppet people! Each of their unique faces are hand sculpted then cast and mold into porcelain powder, delicately painted with inspiration from Japanese confectionery. Puppetable and ready to storytell, quiet wise fairy in your pocket, one of a kind petite gift. Can also be hung.
