Cate & Levi Review and Giveaway CLOSED

















About Cate & Levi (from website)

The Birth
As my wife and I awaited the birth of our first child, I noticed that there was a lack of one of a kind, responsibly made, and beautifully designed products for children. I decided to create a unique collection of products that would be intricately crafted and environmentally responsible.

Responsibility
The Cate & Levi Collection is H A N DMA D E at my studio in Toronto, Canada. Together with my talented production team, I oversee every aspect of this collection. All the materials are sourced as close to home as possible. This process cuts down on shipping and reduces our carbon footprint. The choice of reclaimed wool reduces demand for new materials that require both water and oil for production. My goal is for these items to leave the softest possible pawprint on our planet.

One Of A Kind
No two Cate & Levi products will ever be the same. Each one is made from reclaimed wool whose colors and textures are individually selected. Not only is this process environmentally responsible, but it ensures that each animal is truly a one of a kind creation never to be duplicated. Each item is as unique as the child who adopts it.

Giving Back
It is important for me to set a good example for my child, to work in a highly creative and responsible fashion, and to produce long lasting items that can be today's plaything and tomorrow's keepsake. I am building a company my family can be proud of. Ten percent of my profits will be donated to funds that help children in need.
Maybe its because I grew up in an era of puppets from Sesame Street to the creepy things on Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, but I LOVE puppets!!  And it seems to have rubbed off on my kids.  At our library they have a huge collection of puppets and my kids could spend hours, if not days there playing with them all.  Cate & Levi puppets are extra fun because they are one of a kind, hand made from reclaimed materials.
In our house, of course they are vicious man eating puppets, but if you'd like a kinder gentler puppet, that's just what you'll get!  Maybe you'd like a guest for your tea party instead of a loud and rowdy menace, you make it whatever you want, but I promise it'll be fun!!
