Maria Koskela is a North Vancouver artisan who designs and makes modern baby toys under
her mimi label. She uses organic, sustainable materials to create products that are safe, creative
and encourages children to use their imagination while playing. Maria was born and raised in

Finland. She graduated from the University of Industrial Arts of Helsinki, Finland with an
Masters degree in product design, married a Danish/Canadian and moved to Vancouver to raise

from nature and she applies the Scandinavian design philosophy ‘less is more’ into her toy designs.
