Steamy Chums is a line of hand-crafted, hand-painted, limited-edition designer toys in the image of steampunk animal companions.
Steamy is a playful way to describe a steaming engine, and chum is a vintage word for friend. The name of our brand is a reference to Victorian times, hard but romantic, in which newborn industry and good old craftsmanship came together to shape wonderful artifacts.
Our products combine the feeling of awe and power of the early industrial age with the gentleness and care of artisans.
We are passionate about nature and life, but we keep hearing about the dangers wildlife is exposed to because of human activities. What if we lose nature's wonderful creatures? We would rebuild them, perhaps, to keep memory of their aspect and their company.
They would be shaped in the way we want to remember them, cute little puppies, but they would still look like machines.
Our toys are a beautiful design object, and at the same time they want to bring awareness to the risk of wildlife extinction.
By purchasing one of our toys, you become part of the Story of the Camps: a story of resilience, inventiveness, friendship, and hope.
