Hi! We're Curlworks– a two-fella team of artists (named Olly and Keaton) from Minneapolis, MN who design and create handmade plush goodies, custom kigurumi, and other lil miscellaneous things like stickers and buttons in our humble apartment-side-room studio. We've been in business since 2015 crafting custom and made-to-order work for clients all over the world and it's been a blast so far!
We approach our biz in a "treat others like you'd like to be treated" sorta way. Communication, honesty, transparency, reliability, and craftsmanship are very important to us. Commissioning someone for a custom item, especially one that's kinda spendy, takes a lot of trust, so we want to make sure that its as fun and stress-free as possible, because it should be!
Co-Owner, Main Guy
