I'm Claire O'Brien, the sole maker behind Cloud Rabbit Designs - based in Perth East, Ontario, Canada.
You should know, this little biz is my beloved side hustle; I work a full-time job that I'm very happy at and don't plan on leaving. I devote most of my free time to the creative process (as well as managing all other aspects of the business) and I always strive to provide exceptional customer service, without sacrificing a happy, healthy & balanced life at home. I create every one of my products from scratch with my own two hands, my own designs, with utmost care - and a mind in the clouds.
My vision has always been to make small-batch, unique, quality products that are practical, affordable, beautiful (obviously) and vegan-friendly using my favourite designer fabrics, cork leathers and reliable hardware. I have focused on providing a lineup of simple designs that have evolved over the years through my own creative evolution and valued customer feedback.
My "studio" is a basement bedroom at home. I have no conventional training - I've learned everything I know through YouTube videos, tutorials, photos, advice from other makers and a LOT of trial and error. Nothing about this venture has been quick or easy or cheap - far from it - but it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done and I'm filled with ideas and ambition for what's yet to come.
While I may be a small operation, I work hard and with LOTS of love for what I do.
Thank you for visiting my website and for taking the time to get to know me and my little handmade business. Your support means a lot and every purchase, big or small, helps to fuel this journey!
