Who stands behind Fox Majeure

My first intentional creative impulse came when I was about five: I chopped two large patches out of my Granny’s curtain. I saw endless creative possibilities; others - nothing but huge holes in the drapery. Nevertheless, that was the beginning!
Since then I mastered different crafts leaning towards working with fibers and textile. Whatever I made I gave as gifts to friends and family. Kids grew up with my toys and still treasure them years past.
And then once… I made an impromptu sale. On a 12 hours Transatlantic flight my then 18 months old son was genuinely engrossed into playing with a sensory book I’ve made. Our fellow traveler insisted to buy the book literally on-the-fly endorsing my handwork very generously. I had no more excuses for not selling my work.
Though not all items in my shop are intended for children only, everything is test-driven and approved by the real kid. Since 2011 my son Filipp was the the inspiration and the first recipient (or better to say the first responder :) to sensory books, play mats, pretend play items, toys. Initially open under the name MonoNoAvare my shop emerged into Fox Majeure. Filipp expanded his role of a model and a test-driver into a fully fledged team member - my design adviser and independent creator of soon-to-be-introduced postcards. Today my items continue their life journeys in 21 countries. I make exclusive lines of sensory books for boutiques in Nantucket and New York. Currently I am working on expanding my cooperation with rehabilitation and occupational therapists. My fascination with creative workmanship and sincere desire to share my knowledge brought me to teaching handwork to adults and kids, both curious explorers and Waldorf students.
About 200 sensory quiet time books later I still affirm the same I started with:
Designed with attention to details and learning in mind.
Handmade for Someone Very Special.
Treasured today, kept as a family heirloom ever after.
Please let me know if you need assistance in choosing the most relevant for you set of activities or play items.
Beware: things made by hand find the shortest way to our hearts: they were made with a glee of inspiration on one end and become the keepers of the dear memories on the other. It depends on us today what we would reminisce tomorrow. So, choose your material belongings having this future flashbacks in mind :)

I’d be honored if some of your tomorrow’s memories would be created with my help.

I do my best to photograph and describe my items as precisely as possible.

On international orders the default shipping is First class by the United States Post Office. Please, be advised that this method is trackable only on the US territory. Outside the US it will not be trackable by number. If the total price of the order is more than $100 I strongly recommend upgrading to a fully trackable service. To get a door-to-door tracking for international orders the shipping method is Express Priority International mail by USPS or alikes by FedEx or UPS. Packages to Canada get a special discounted price.

The actual price paid is indicated on customs forms. The item is marked as merchandise. Any customs fees are a buyer’s responsibility.

I pack every item carefully to avoid any possible damage. Please, let me know if you prefer recycled materials for packaging.

Any transportation-related delays, damages or loses are the responsibility of a shipping service. Once the item is shipped I do not have any control over it - please contact the shipping agent for clarifications.

I ship from the zip code 77005. Other than USPS I can mail orders with UPS and FedEx by your choice. You can check carriers’ estimates and shipping methods directly on their websites:
- USPS -

Please, be aware that those given online are estimates and might be different from the actual shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please, note: I make some of my items (quiet time books, play mats) very rich with elements – beads, buttons, eyelets, etc. Other than being a significant part of activities, they add color and texture to tactile exploration. Though securely sewn onto pages these little parts may become a choking hazard when torn. Please check frequently if any came loose.
By purchasing my work containing small and possibly detachable elements you recognize the potential risks and are fully responsible for the its prevention.
