Thank you for your interest in adopting one of my handmade Kawaii Friends!
As I enjoy to be personally in touch with my customers, ordering my Kawaii Friends does not happen through a shopping system, but via email.
To place your order, please make a note of the Friends’ name(s) you've chosen, and fill in the required details in the contact form below.
Upon obtaining your adoption order, you will receive an email confirmation from me (usually within 2 business days) which details the estimated shipping costs
to your location, the necessary payment information, and details about one of the following things;
Made to Order
If you’ve ordered a Kawaii Friend which is Made to Order, it means that I treat it as a **commission to create one for you in that exact style, and you'll receive an indication of your estimated waiting time depending on the tightness of my schedule.
If you’ve ordered a Kawaii Friend that is currently In Stock, there is naturally no waiting period, and I will inform you about the earliest shipping date possible.
Follow up emails will find their way to you once I’ve received your payment, and again when your order is ready for shipment—carefully packaged
to be sent on its way—containing shipping details and a track & trace link to follow your new Kawaii Friend’s journey right to your home.
*Please take note that for Paypal transactions, I will have to charge a small additional fee to cover their transaction costs in order to correctly balance my own administration. Thank you for understanding (:
** Commissioned Friends have absolutely no extra costs, aside from the time I need to make it for you until I can get it shipped your way.

A Dutch girl fascinated with Japan and in love with everything kawaii~
Hello and welcome; it's a pleasure to meet you!
My name is Kimberly Jolanda, often better known by my nickname Kiyo, and I've been a freelance digital artist for several years, working in the fields of design and illustration.Though I was born and still live in Leiden, a historic university city in the Netherlands, I’ve been fascinated with Japan since my teens; the culture, natural beauty and art an endless source of inspiration, the last especially in its famous Kawaii styles, as I've always had a penchant for cute, whimsical things.
When I discovered the artisan craft of needle felting back in 2018—finding in its process a relaxing hobby next to my mainly computer-focused work—it slowly grew into a passion when I began designing my own little characters, which eventually became the Kawaii Friends that populate my website here today.
Available in various shapes, colours and sizes, they are all made by hand and I hope that if you found your way here, they were able to put a smile on your face ツ
