Ragtales was created in 2011 by two friends whose aim it was to introduce a collection of soft toys and rag books that are evocative of the rich visual heritage of literature.
Every one of our characters starts life as a sketch, drawing inspiration from the quirky, whimsical stories that are part of our childhood. Those sketches are then brought to life and handmade into samples, sourcing the right fabrics for tactile and emotional learning is crucial to the transformation of each character from sketch to the first sample.
We use a variety of textiles – the softest velours, the chunkiest knits, the prettiest florals,
that when all carefully combined give our beautiful and quirky characters a unique personality.
