Furry Feline Creatives is the character design studio representing the lifestyle brands Purridge & Friends and I Heart Poop Culture. Started in 2012. Two newly proud parents, Alvin & Cheri wanted their kids to grow up and recognize their individuality and differences. Embracing themselves for who they are. So they turned into creating their own characters to share the message of Individuality, Creativity and Family. A bond between everyone in the family regardless of age to share various interest and passions.
Cheri with no previous sewing background started sewing plush toys with the drawings she made in her childhood days while Alvin wrote stories influenced by people's personalities, interests and experience. These were projected in these wonderful and appealing cast of characters.
"We wanted to make something real and personal. We are unique, we all got stories to tell and that what makes it so special and original".
