Studio-escargot is the small label under which Sophia Smeekens started designing and making loveables for kids. Ever since she was a small girl Sophia made her own dolls, dolls clothes and even whole houses out of pretty much everything she could find. During her education as an upholsterer and interior advisor she developed a profound love for (old) fabrics, shape and colour. After ten years of working in the fashion industry Sophia realised that she wanted to do more with her own ideas and work on a smaller scale and more with and for her surroundings. During the last years Sophia started working with natural (plant) dyes and left over (vintage) fabrics. Her goal is to completely work with the zero waste principal, refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot. You can read all about her way to a zero waste and simple minimal life here:
