Meet the tribe: Minu's eerily beautiful creations

Hi there,

I am Minu Freitag. I am an illustrator, print- and toy-maker, based in Wellington, New Zealand where I create my artwork and illustrations.

Art(work)
My anthropomorphic characters and scenes are based on traditional archetypes: the unwilling (grumpy) and lonely hero, the companion on a journey; the dangers and shadows of the past, present and future. They tend to shift their shapes, wear various skins, or live in symbioses with other beings; they often are caught between stagnation and change, between darkness and light, melancholy and resilience.

Though not addressed to children, minu’s artwork is often seen as working well with children.

Shop policies

All items are 100% handmade by me. I would like all my creations to find a good home, so it is very important for me that you are happy with what you get. If you like an item but would really love it in a different size, colour, or fabric, feel free to contact me.

Have a look around and ask any question you like :).

Target delivery time for shipping varies between 7 and 28 working days. Orders might be held up in your national customs system.
Please contact your local customs office and ask for potential delays and fees before buying.

Because NZ Post does not directly control all parts of the delivery chain, they cannot guarantee that your item will always reach its destination within the target delivery times. Delivery to areas outside major cities, or where your order is dutiable or held in Customs, may take longer.

Delayed delivery
Parcels might be held in Customs or other border control authorities like Bio Security. Your tracking information will keep you up to date with the status.

All Packaging material is either reused, recycled or recyclable
Prints are shipped in a cellophane bag and a rigid mailer (90% recycled paper).
Soft toys are shipped in a cellophane bag and a padded bag.

Additional policies and FAQs
I don't offer wholesales for minu toys but I have a commission and wholesale offer for minu prints sold in galleries . Please contact me for more information price-lists and terms & conditions.

Many thanks for your interest.

Take care,

Heike (aka minu)
