Black Cats are Good Luck

I always loved creative people, folk art and unusual fashion, but I never saw myself as a "maker" so I ended studying a Communication career. After I got my degree I found myself lost and unmotivated, applying for random jobs and figuring out what to do with myself.

One day my brother brought home a black cat, a tiny furry thing that sleeped in a card box. "We should decorate this little bed" -I told myself, and cut a cat silhouette from an old black felt sheet where I hand embroidered its name -Misifú- and then glued it to the box. It looked nice, so I cut some more felt cats and sew them in a pink t-shirt. Then I made fruits, and boats, toadstools, flowers, I couldn't stop! People started to get interested in my customized t-shirts and I started to think I really could make something productive with my hands.

Since then I've tried to learn and dream and make and work with the passion of those who love what they do. The customized t-shirts gave way to cute dolls and plushies, fancy headpieces and other hand stitched and embroidered little things. And then I discovered Etsy, a place full of beauty, charm and respect for the creative work. And I stayed.

I work from home, in a little colorful messy studio with a sunny window from where I can hear old ladies chatting and teenager lovers being, well, in love. I also can hear kids yelling like mad. I feel when I'm in front of a table full of fabric scraps, buttons, yarn balls, pieces of paper with doodles and half finished projects here and there. I love to create lovely textile characters and other little colorful things from scratch. It's magical.

Some people finds my brand name funny, because supercursi means something like "supertwee". I can be acid and grumpy, but most of the time I'm a girly creature who loves dresses and skirts, mismatching houseware, silly little trinkets and movies that end with The Beach Boys' songs.

I really love The Beach Boys.

***In loving memory of Misifú***

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I'll be happy to work with you to turn your idea into reality, don't hesitate to ask! I put lots of love and care in every piece I make and that takes some time, so please have that in mind if you need your order to arrive in time for a specific event.

Care instructions

Every item from my shop is carefully hand/machine sewn and hand embroidered by me with quality and durability in mind, but they are meant to be treated with love and care and will enjoy gentle play.

I've heard stories about my tiniest dolls ending in the washing machine by accident and escaping pretty well, but I definitely don't recommend it; please always wash gently by hand.
