Herbert & Friends

Herbert & Friends was founded by Sydney based artist and crafter Torunn Higgins. After a fine arts degree at COFA, Torunn found herself drawn to designing and creating quirky soft critters which took on a life of their own. 

She draws inspiration from notions of self identity, the little idiosyncrasies inside all of us, and the personas and ideas we project onto the animal and natural worlds. Torunn works with natural, recycled, and synthetic materials where needed.
