We design and create our own original amigurumi plushies. Amigurumi (編みぐるみ in kanji) directly translates to 'crocheted or knitted stuffed toy'. This is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed plushies using yarn. The word is a blend of the words: ⁠
'ami (編)' = crocheted or knitted,⁠
'nuigurumi (ぬいぐるみ)' = a small, stuffed doll. ⁠

The exact origin of amigurumi / crochet plushies has been tricky to place, but historians generally agree the art most likely came from China (dating back to the Shang dynasty!), before being introduced in Japan and eventually popularised as the kawaii (かわいい) culture began to emerge.


As HongKongers, our creations are inspired by our shared culture. We are also inspired by our multicultural heritage and by the things we love. We are currently operating from Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. 


We launched Little Egg Crafts in September 2020 on Instagram as a creative project to bring us closer together during tough times whilst far apart from each other. Our small independent shop is an opportunity for us to develop our skills and meet other artists, creators and makers globally.

We hope you like our collections as much as we enjoyed designing and making them!
