ketch-i-kreatures! was a dream that came together between two friends giggling over coffee and the creatures already formulated on paper. "You can do anything you want! Shouldn't It be something you can be proud of, and get behind."

Inspiration for ketch-i-kreatures! creatures, comes directly from the hooks and pots that sustain her family and the hours they spend together combing the beaches and forests of South East, Alaska. From the micro-organisms that define healthy waters to the hugest wales they sustain. Katy has first hand experience with all these creatures. There are sea stars, sea cucumbers, jelly fish & humpback whales found in the waters around her home seasonly. Her family’s passion for sustainable fishing practices and their dedication to being good stewards of our oceans are founding principles of ketch-i-kreatures! There is a delicate balance between harvesting and sustainability. Katy wants the beauty of South East Alaska to be handed down to future generations. This passion finally has an out let with ketch-i-kreatures! She uses these adorable creatures to educate people on sustainability and a positive social message. From her micro-organism collection to The Amanda humpback whale!

Katy uses her background in design to formulate the patterns of these adorable, 3 dimensional creatures. Each pattern has evolved from hours of observation, thought, and inspiration from the creatures and children of Ketchikan, Alaska. She loves to sketch each kreature design playing with the personality until it is just right.

ketch-i-kreatures! S.H.R.I.M.P! was featured at the 2nd & 3rd annual Shellfish festival, Ketchikan, Alaska 2011, 2012.

Katy Posey's micro-organisms line took part in 'The Art of Biology' an art show at The Main Street Art Gallery in Ketchikan, Alaska. September 2013.

All of Katy's kreatures are made of fleece or minkey to create a pillow like buddy ready to cuddle. Stuffed with poly fiber and poly beads these pieces of art can be machine washed on cold, after a long day of rigorous play. Most of the kreatures can "sit" by themselves. Adorned with safety eyes, and embellished with ribbon. Our baby toys have no buttons, and are double stitched for safety, but please take care when giving any gift to a child under 3.

ketch-i-kreatures! now does all their own screen printing. Starting in August 2013, The 100% organic cotton t-shirts, and onesies that feature original designs, are hand printed locally at the ketch-i-kreatures! art studio on Pennock Island.

Most of the items are already made and ready to be shipped, but some are sewn up after the order has been placed. If you are in a hurry please ask about availability. Every item should ship in less than two weeks. Because these items are light, shipping expenses are kept low by shipping first class.
