The School of Life is a global organisation dedicated to developing emotional intelligence. They apply psychology, philosophy, and culture to everyday life. In their books, card games, classes, workshops etc. they address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world.
After working in different studios, Maria was concerned about the amount of skins that were put aside and forgotten once an item had been completed. Coming from a warm country, she really felt the cold. Wanting to give these discarded skins a second life and driven with a desire to wage war against the freezing temperatures, Maria started to design ethical, practical and colourful accessories. The result is Toasties - a functional product with a low-key vibe.
