The creator of Suomi Tale, Florencia Slatkis, creates one-off characters that appeal to both young and old with their unique features, stylish outfits, and delightful charm. Flor is inspired by Literature, Woods and Nordic Design. From her home in Buenos Aires in Argentina, Flor hand makes the characters and brings them to life for adventures in their little world.
“I love creating the characters, it is a pleasure for me, and even more knowing that somebody understands it and perceives some feeling.” Florencia
Each of the dolls names were taken from characters of different stories (taking into consideration particular expressions or other details)
Lewis Carroll: Lars, thin moustache, as the bunny of “Alice in Wonderland”.
Oscar Wilde: Sibyl, inspired by Sybil Vane of “The Portrait of Dorian Grey”.
Jorge Luis Borges: Bjarni, Skald in “Undr” and Brynhild of “Ulrica”.
Julio Cortázar: Holanda of “Final Del Juego”.
Other sources of inspiration are; Mielikki (Woods’s Deity in Finland), René (the Belgian painter René Magritte), John (the English musician John Lennon).
The deer and the bunnies are pioneers in Suomi Tale’s Word / World.
“Suomi” means Finland in Finnish.
Nordic aesthetics are defined by simple lines, soft and dark colours, natural fabrics and the woods as the main topic of this peculiar world.
