My name is Tea de Both and I've always been most happy expressing myself artistically.
I was born in Zagreb and went to School for Applied Art and Design, Department of window-dressing.
I spent those days making various puppets and other creatures.
In my early twenties I moved to London in UK and finished toy-making course in London College of Furniture. In those days I was making dolls and selling them on markets in Greenwich and Camden town.
After 20 years of wonderful life in London I moved back to Zagreb where I discovered needle and wet felting technique and now combining my skills and experience I am ready to show the world what I can create.
In 2015 I become a member of ULUPUH (The Croatian Association of Artists of the Applied Arts) department of toys and puppets.

I am absolutely delighted with my purchases. These stunning handmade felted items come beautifully packaged and the service is excellent and prompt. The animals are adorable, charming and unique: each is truly one of a kind. They are beautifully made with deep exquisite colours and the subtle sweet scent from the lavender buds and oil is heavenly, evoking an enchanting and calming effect. It takes a considerable level of creativity, imagination and talent to develop and produce such an array of original, stylish and very special items. Each is clearly made with care and affection, which is reflected in the quality and individuality of the end products. I could not be happier with my purchases. They make superb gifts and I have already started my own collection. I highly recommend T head felted creations. I am a very happy customer and look forward to building my collection.
