SquashieCo

SquashieCo is a sustainable independent label who cares deeply about the environment. We aim to reduce as much waste and carbon footprint as possible when creating this adorable plush for the future. We specialise in producing cute anime/animation plushies with high-quality fabrics and detail. They make great companions that bring more happiness into our daily life, which can be thoughtful gifts for friends/family or even for yourself!

Stuffed toys are reliable companions when travelling or hanging out at home. The industry of anime is growing rapidly in all four corners around the world. This then shows a strong connection between the cosplayers and anime. Cosplayers love plush toys which they can relate to, some even dress up as their favourite characters. I like to create anime characters that are popular from the present and also the past.

All products are handmade in the U.K with precise delicacy.

Philosophy

All of SquahieCo's soft toys are suitable for all ages. Safety of all ages are prioritised. With all embroidery sewn tightly to eliminate the risks of swallowing small parts. This ensures that all risk of hazard is kept to a minimum. The fabric used is eco-friendly, only using cotton organic materials. Fleece is the main fabric used throughout the majority of the toy because it serves a soft texture which stimulates a sense of touch which will aid the consumer's self-security and comfort in tight situations. By using eco-friendly materials, it also reduces the use of chemicals used throughout the process of producing the material, especially with shoppers who are prone to allergies.

What makes this label sustainable and different from all the other toy labels is that we use the leftover scraps and use them as fillings, so therefore has a 0% wastage. All materials used are biodegradable and made from natural fibres. SquashieCo cares a lot about the environment and wants to create an impact for the future.

After analysing the toy industry, only a handful of labels are pursuing the sustainability route, but an incredibly small amount in the UK. By marking the label’s name into this industry gives me a huge advantage.

A 10% discount will be offer to all customer who refers a friend with a special code. Through my social page I receive true supporters who love my work and we can take advantage of this situation. So far it is a small crowd of followers, but with precise execution, we can expand the growth with various competition where my followers and I can interact. Hosting raffles and giveaways is a great way to engage with all my followers and gain more recognition the community.

About Eddy Yeung

Eddy Yeung
The path to his dream is thorny, but it must be passed to be happy

With 6 year’s background in fashion designing and counting, I continue to pursue a career in craftsmanship. From making womenswear to menswear clothing, it has taught me multiples of important skills and the thought process to create these garments. Gaining these skills from a fashion design prospect, I transferred the knowledge and skill over into toy making. Not only relying on a sewing machine, but I have also gained knowledge with new hand sewing techniques, that bring more creativity to the products which ensure the highest quality finish of the product.

To create a label that is sustainable means a lot to me. As a vegan I take every action I do into consideration without any harm for the planet, animals or the environment around me. I do this for myself and the planet. The amount of scrap fabrics that go into the landfill is horrifying. When I learned how much fabric is left behind after production, I knew I had to figure out a solution and make great use of them to keep it out of landfills. Instead of wasting it, they are cut into small pieces and used as secondary stuffing for each product.

The first anime I have ever watched was “My Neighbour Totoro.” From that day, I fell in love with the film and continued to watch more Studio Ghibli movies. Spirited away, Princess Mononoke, Jiji’s Delivery Service and many more. This then leads me to a variety of genres. Naruto being one of my favourites (but who doesn’t love Naruto). From watching countless anime, it has inspired me to create plushies of some of the characters. Watching animes opened doors for me into the Japanese culture. As my interest grew, I felt the need to explore their fascinating culture more.

With the skills and information I've obtained throughout my journey, I am willing to exceed my current potential and aim for higher. I am excited to see where my creativity will take me.

Each hand size plush can take up to 2/3 hours to produce. In the long runs, it can be very costly with time. So as another idea I have which will save time, is the buyer to learn how to make the toys in their own time by hand. Sewing is an important skill towards all ages. A simple booklet that guides towards the steps will help them learn this skill. A hobby can always become a passion later in life.
