Shortly thereafter, Playful Puffin was hatched. In 2013 while Nicola was on tour in Japan, she experienced first hand the art of Shiburi and Sashiko, which inspired her to start experimenting with different hand dyeing and embroidery techniques. After relocating from London (UK) to Oakland in early 2014, she started creating one off pieces for the home. She continues to find inspiration in her travels and likes to ensure all items are handmade and sewn using natural textiles.
