Dora Designs was stitched together in 1991 by Maker Angela Stevens, a home crafter who wished to join the tradition of her entrepreneurial family. After noticing how doors in homes are often kept open with a potpourri of stray objects, like stacks of magazines, she dreamed up a cuddly solution that would lend charm without sacrificing functionality. She started stitching at her parents’ kitchen table and brought her wares to craft fairs around England, where they quickly won hearts.
Each cuddly animal friend is an Angela-designed delight. Perfectly weighted, the charming doorstops keep doors open without the risk of stubbing toes, while the draft stoppers are a whimsical way to block chilly air without creating clutter.
