I am Mirit, the ONE person behind bubynoa handmade toys and accessories.

First I want you to know I truly love what I do, and I love every item I make. I put my heart, soul and mind to create something special for you to enjoy and be part of your life and home!

Bubynoa was born out of my love for children’s toys and dolls especially. I bought my first (and still standing…) sewing machine on an impulse, which I guess came from my growing need to create. It happened in the winter of 2005, in the midst of a bad snowstorm. My husband and our baby girl accompanied me to choose the one I like in a very small sewing machine and accessories store.

In the beginning I made dolls for neighbours and friends and colleague or people who knew about me and what I do. In May 2010 I decided to officially open “bubynoa Handmade toys and accessories” as a small business.

The designs I make keep changing and evolving as I grow older and more experienced with my work, looking at the dolls I made when I just began and what I design and make today, I can clearly see growth and improvement.

There is a big and important concept behind every bubynoa creation. Every aspect of an item I make is well thought of: from purchasing the materials, the design of a new pattern to the finished product.

I care deeply for the environment and I have a lot of love and true admiration for animals. I wanted bubynoa to incorporate all of these feelings and beliefs in each and every product.

I see bubynoa as an educational tool; each item is eco friendly and ethically-sourced and then there is the finished product that entices and engages. I create the lions, rhinos, elephant and giraffes to introduce them to children. Those animals and their habitat are on the verge of extinction, and we can change that by teaching and raising awareness at a young age. When a parent purchases a rhino doll for example, they are introducing a whole new world to their young child. Now the child recognizes the animals in movies or books and a conversation is started.

bubynoa is committed to environmental and social responsibility. All my creations are made from materials purchased in local, socially responsible stores and/or upcycled, vintage materials. My promotions are done on 100% recycled paper, and printed in waterless ink.


Working with Upcycled and Vintage Materials, Handpicking each and every fabric, the limited quantity and nature of the materials, Designing the patterns, Making each and every item by my own hands from the initial start to the finished product - That what makes bubynoa One of a Kind!


All my materials are sourced locally in the most socially, environmentally responsible way. I hand pick each and every fabric and thread. I work ONLY with upcycled and vintage Textiles.
