Fuwa Fuwa, Joie de Vivre was inspired by Allison + Cam’s travels in Japan, a place where everything has a mascot. There is a deep appreciation of these cute characterizations that embody the spirit of places & products there. When the artists first created Fuwa Fuwa it made them happy; it looked the way they want to feel all the time. With no specific gender, soft edges without much definition, myriad colours; Allison + Cam hope that Fuwa Fuwa will resonate with a wide audience.
