My name is Francesca, and I live in a small town in northern Italy at the foot of the Italian Alps, not too far from Garda Lake..
I’m the creative mind behind MosMea, and I make storytelling creatures for people who love nature, dreams, and fairy tales.
I love drawing all sorts of creatures and brings them to life by sewing and stuffing them into objects that can bright up your everyday life.
Making things has always been incredibly important to me . I have tried many areas creatively over the years and now I find myself drawing, which I adore .
I come from a creative family – my grandparents and great-grandparents were all talented artists – but I don’t have formal training in anything I make. I started painting in the summer of 2013 as a way to rehabilitate my wrist after an accident. Before that, I owned a small fashion lab for several years.
I love nature and many of my works arise from ideas started by taking a walk around our mountains. My main inspirations come from nature that really fascinate me: it is truly a pleasure create something beautiful that originates from the amazing life cycles.
All my products are hand painted by me with water based non-toxic ink for fabric and everything is made in Italy. Every piece is handmade with a lot of care and is suitable for a vegan lifestyle: I use only cotton fabric and polyester soft filler. No animal components.
