About catbun

On Etsy since 2010

Putting smiles on faces with allergy friendly, handmade eco soft toys.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my shop!

I am Akiko, a fashion and graphic designer by trade during the day and a cat by night ( I tend to get lost in my world of cats and bunnies, hence the name catbun ˆ ˆ ˜ )

Catbun was born as a hobby, sparked by an idea of creating minimalistic plushies and bringing them to life. They tend to be my go-to gifts for friends and family for baby showers and birthdays as a token of love which I simply could not produce with purchased items. Putting a smile on their faces always seems to light up my day.
Since then I also started an etsy shop as a hobby whilst juggling with my full time job.

Growing in a small town living with my grandparents in Malaysia, I was especially fond of my grandma who was then a seamstress, where I would engross myself in materials, sewing and embroidery techniques. That was when I developed a deep interest in fashion and sewing, eventually pursuing as a career.

Fast forward to 2018, my partner and I welcomed our son into the world, a few years after migrating to Melbourne Australia - which we now call home. As our son has severe eczema and allergies, I decided to take a break from my job and become a full time stay home mum. Every night and on weekends, when I get the chance to swap roles with my partner in doing parenting duties, I would fire up my sewing machine and disappear into my world of catbun.

Do feel free to browse around, I hope my plushies have brought lots of smiles to you.If you have adopted or have decided to adopt one of them, I'd like to thank you for supporting my small business and it truly means a lot to me.

I will be adding new ones from time to time so please do drop by.

Till then, take care!

Love,
Akiko
