Whether it’s into the wilds of Africa with zebras and elephants, or merely into the national parks for rabbits and deer, Anne-Claire Petit has a trophy head that is the perfect accessory for your little adventurer’s room.
There are polka dot elephants, rainbow stripe zebras, colourful deer, as well as gorgeous grey rabbits – all handmade from organic cotton and each one unique
Each trophy head is handmade by craftspeople in China and is made from organic cotton dyed according to specific Anne-Claire Petit colour schemes to ensure the exact intensity of colour. There are about 200 women who work to craft the Anne-Claire pieces; they all work at home, often with their neighbours and determine their own schedule. Once a shipload is complete, it is shipped to ACP’s Dutch warehouse.
Designer Details Anne-Claire Petit studied industrial design in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where she specialized in textile design and studied handicrafts such as printing, weaving and crochet before beginning her career as a designer for clothing brand Esprit. After four years at this international label, she took the plunge and started her own company, Anne-Claire Petit Accessoires, which was well known for its shawls and other fashion accessories. In 2002 Anne-Claire shifted her focus to a kids & home collection with a single toy bear; the brand now features more than 250 products that range from an extended animal family and baby toys to furniture, cushions and wallets. Quirky, retro and modern all at the same time, the products that come from the Anne-Claire Petit brand are designed to be cherished for generations and are generally made from 100 per cent organic cotton and FairTrade crafted.
