Renate Müller

Renate Müller lives and works in Sonneberg - a location once considered the center of toy manufacturing established by German makers in the 1800s. Since the early 1960s, Müller has been designing and making jute and leather toys by hand, in the form of creatures that range in scale from songbirds to hippos. Müller's designs are sturdy in order to be tumbled over, climbed on, and tossed around. In addition to their appeal to children, design connoisseurs also find Müller's handcrafted designs irresistible and many use the larger animals as seats or footstools.
