Even before Momomints started, Sami use to make little charms with polymer clay as presents for her friends for special occasions like birthdays. The first one Sami made was inspired by a special birthday gift that she received of a Teru Teru Bozu doll.
Teru Teru Bozu dolls are little Japanese handmade dolls that farmers made out of white paper or cloth that look similar to ghosts made on Halloween here in North America. They were made to help bring good weather and ward away rainy days.
The basic shape of a Momomints charm is still inspired by this Japanese doll. All of our charms have large round heads, and smaller cylindrical bodies.
We are so happy now to see that our little charms are now shared with those all around the world. We only hope that they bring the same love that we put into them to their new owners. And maybe they will also bring along good weather and keep away any rainy days.
This month’s limited edition one of a kind Momomints charm is a Momobunny with a mint coloured shirt, holding a little carrot. Find him on our Etsy shop.
