We are very excited to work with artists David & Marie from The museum of Imaginary Animals. When I first saw their hand soaps on Fine Little Day I supposed I got such a cravings I almost fainted so when they later contacted us to become a sponsor we where thrilled!

You two have a fantastic way of meeting – please give us a the story
We met through a mutual friend who encouraged us send mail to each other (we were living hundreds of miles apart at the time). Marie sent David a typewritten letter and David sent Marie a collaged postcard. Later, we met in person for the first time at the same friend’s wedding. Our first collaboration was installing the wedding decorations. It was a great success! For a whole year we sent collages, drawings, postcards and decorated packages back and forth across several states. Finally, we decided to join forces and save postage. Now we share a little studio in and collaborate on all sorts of fun projects.

You started out and are both artists – How do you come up with all the great ideas like making hand soap?

First artists then designers, we enjoy creating products that are intriguing, useful and often humorous. Handsoap began as a sculpture by Marie which incorporated thousands of doll hands cast in soap… Now it’s our most popular product! We are inspired by all sorts of things… Nature, music, movies, hairstyles, mysterious objects, strange stories and experiences, etc. Since we like to make funny products, often something that inspires us also makes us laugh. One idea or experiment usually leads to another… The more we create the more ideas we get!

Are all the things in the shop made by you?
Almost everything in our shop is handmade by us. The only exception is our paper goods, which feature our artwork and photography professionally printed on sustainable sourced paper.
