Otto's Happy Life

Otto has been creating since his childhood. After studying literature, he moved to Italy where he taught French. On his return, he trained in merchandising and worked for various brands.

At the same time, he draws, paints and knits. His various trips are a source of inspiration

Three years ago, he started creating woolen dolls from photos, a kind of knitted icon.

The Happy STYLE of Otto

His Icons are knitted portraits

They are all unique pieces of the same size (about 15cm) and weight (about 150g). They are sometimes decorated with beads, small paper accessories, pieces of fabric…

The Icons are all handmade

Icons are not toys

Why we LOVE Otto

How can you survive in this complicated world without a good dose of humour and a sense of humour? This is what Otto offers us with infinite talent.

His icons are works of art that highlight small details of a dress or hairstyle. The silhouette is of course simplified but perfectly recognizable.

We appreciate their beauty, their fun and their sweetness, in short, a real favourite!
