About

Pins, accessories and gifts for cat people and introverts

I was born in Finland but have called London my home for over a decade. Finnish style is known for its clean lines and simplicity, but many Finnish designers also use pops of bright colours and bold shapes. My style is influenced by my Finnish roots while embracing the quirkiness of London. In London, anything goes!

I learned many of my craft and design skills from my grandmother who was an avid crafter and maker. I remember long, happy afternoons making art out of mosaic tiles and baking cinnamon buns. I spent a lot of my childhood summers on an island on the Finnish coast, and when I wasn't exploring the woods or swimming in the sea, I was usually making something.

I first opened an Etsy shop in 2007 selling jewellery but life got in the way and I closed it. Nearly a decade later I'm back with new ideas! My shop was initially called Diglot Etc and rebranded as Laura Talanti Design & Illustration in August 2017. Even in the years I didn't run a shop, I was never really away from Etsy, though, as I've always loved browsing the huge array of wonderful handmade items from sellers around the world. I use my Etsy purchases every day - be it some of my favourite earrings, or the embossed letter keychain, or the huge scarf I often wear.

I share my home with a tortie & white rescue cat called Iona. She is really the CEO of this business. I'm a self-confessed wannabe stay-at-home cat mum and many of my original illustrations on products in the shop feature cats. I'm passionate about cat welfare and have been supporting Celia Hammond Animal Trust for over 10 years. I also foster cats and kittens for my local cat charity Catcuddles (check out my social media accounts for lots of photos!).

See the links to follow me on social media for a behind the scenes look at what goes on in my studio, and for sneak peeks of new products. And do say hello, I love to hear from my customers!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

It's best to store your pins and badges away from humid places (i.e. not in the bathroom) to avoid tarnishing.

Colours

Colours may vary on different screens. Photographs are as accurate as possible on my screen, and I usually try to describe colours in listings too. Please be aware that due to some of the materials used in my items, colours may look slightly different but I guarantee each item will be just as beautiful as it looks like in the photos!

Returns information

Returns should be sent with original packaging whenever possible (or otherwise adequately wrapped to protect items) and I strongly recommend using a Recorded/Tracked delivery method as I cannot be responsible for returns lost in the post. Please keep your receipt from the Post Office until I confirm I've received your return!

Earrings are not returnable for hygiene reasons unless faulty.

Sizing details

Photographs are taken using the macro setting on my camera, and items may appear larger than they are. All my listings include details of sizing and many include a photograph with something (my hand, a pen etc.) for scale. Please check sizing before purchasing! :)

Can I have my order by this weekend?/How quickly will my order arrive?

If you're ordering for a specific tight deadline, please contact me before placing your order!

Delivery time depends on where you are! I normally ship all orders within 24-48 hours using either 1st class post (in the UK) or Airmail (for all other countries). UK orders normally arrive within 2 working days from the shipment notification email you'll get through Etsy.

Western and Northern European orders normally arrive within 4-10 working days. North American orders normally arrive within 6-14 working days.

Please allow for extra time during busy periods i.e. Christmas!
Once an order is sent, I'm not in control of how long it takes to arrive. (Although I wish I could deliver each package personally on a flying unicorn!)
