Founded by Argentinian-Italian designer Alejandra Salvatore. Severina Kids is a unique artisan brand which offers beautifully handcrafted toys and objects for the young and the young at heart. Conceived, imagined and illustrated by Alejandra then handmade by Portuguese and Argentinean artisans, Severina’s objects are distributed worldwide, with each piece uniquely produced with slight variations in style and fabric making each and every piece “one of a kind”.
An architect by training and a self-proclaimed globetrotter, Alejandra grew up in a textile environment. Her mother and grandmother were passionate craftswomen and from her early childhood she was surrounded by people designing, knitting and sewing.
The name Severina Kids was inspired by the birthplace of Alejandra’s grandparents, Santa Severina, a small village in the South of Italy.
Alejandra takes great care in selecting the materials used by the brand. Recycled vintage fabrics, scrap remnants from fashion designers, 100% Certified Peruvian Organic Cotton, 100% Argentinean Merino wool, Eco Felt and Recycled materials.
Last August 2018 Severina Kids received the JUNIORS DADA & JUNIORS DESIGN AWARDS for best Toy & Gifts Brand and last October 2017 SMALLISH DESIGN AWARDS for Best Eco Toy Design. In 2011, Severina Kids won the MILK MAGAZINE Award for Best Toy at Playtime Paris, where the brand was greatly received by the press and critics.
