Binakol fairytale swans and more at La Pomme

I’m going gaga over this online shop for kiddie stuff. Too bad my four kids are all grown up and Alexa is starting to create things for herself as well. The shop is called La Pomme, created by Apol Lejano Massebieau. If her name rings a bell, it’s because she used to be editor of a popular magazine for housekeeping. She’s now married to a Frenchman and a mother of a cute girl named Lilou, and only recently the family moved from the south of France to live in Panglao, Bohol, according to the La Pomme blog. La Pomme was created in France and it’s been on Etsy (here) for a while now.

I am inspired by her efforts to promote indigenous fabrics, and actually handcraft them into unique soft toys. Since inabel, like the swan crafted with binakol fabric, is close to my heart, I can’t thank her enough. Also love her crumpled tote bags made of tree bark fabric, the throw pillows made from recycled plastic and basically everything that she does. Get updates on La Pomme’s pop-up shop every now and then at their Facebook page.
