My name is Federica Bonato-Hayes, I originate from the Veneto region of Italy and have made my home in London for the last fifteen years. I’m married to a wonderful and truly special man Nick and together we have a fabulous boy called Tommaso and a girl called Allegra.
In addition to my full time job I dedicate my spare time to the creation of Handmade products including Greeting Cards, bookmarks, gift bags, made to order framed pictures which I sell everywhere (including Australia).

I love everything to do with “colours” especially bright colours: they bring happiness and cheer my mood up even on a rainy day.

With my brand Kikka & Tikka I produce and design unique, funky, bespoke and vibrant products.

What makes my Kikka and Tikka creations so special?
They are Handmade: each product is full of intricate handmade details, giving them such a sophisticated look. They are made with painstaking care and commitment.
They are Original: There are so many different colours styles and designs that I can cater for all tastes.


I have been making my creations for about 6 years, it started as a hobby after having my baby boy Tommaso and having lost my job 6 weeks after he arrived, I was in need of something to keep my mind busy and focused on something positive which didn’t involve looking for a new job. I started creating some cards and asking for feedback from friends and family. Since the very beginning I received many encouraging words and positive feedback. Once the orders started to come in I made the conscious commitment to start investing in tools, new material and on improving my techniques. With the demand and experience, It then expanded into a broad product range that includes:

- Leather passport covers
- Leather key ring
- Leather luggage tag
- Mugs
- Tin boxes
- Pencil tin case
- snow globe
- mobile phone cases
- Canvas Tote bag
- Greeting Cards
- Personalise framed pictures

I now produce more than 1000 designs each year and it’s fabulous to see them coming to life.

I love the variety and the freedom to know I can create an endless variety of ideas and products.
Because of their unicity I know I can stretch my creativity and technique further for each creations.

Many of my products are Bespoke: They can be designed especially with a personal sentiment, name or dates.
I love the challenge of “bespoke” creations as I have to create something personal for individual people and individual occasions (wedding, special birthday i.e. 40th, 80th, new baby, etc. etc.)


I approach every new creation thinking that there is no limit to what my creativity can produce
