Elsa Boucinha
I’m Elsa, founder of mauvais marie®, a small brand of unique playful things handmade in Lisbon- Portugal.
mauvais marie is my handmade adventure, an architect, crafter and mother of two little ones.
The brand started in 2018 with the idea of creating unique, sustainable, and carefully crafted toys that sparked the imagination.
I started to make toys for my own children, and through playing I wanted to convey to them the value of handmade work, the respect for time (especially the time that takes to make something), and the love for natural materials. And I really wanted them to have fun.
These are still the reasons beyond mauvais marie.
The first collection of soft toys and rattles from mauvais marie is full of personality as it is told by their peculiar noses and the mauvais marie family is still growing.
