Teacup Goblins is a small independent creative business based in Estonia. Uplifiting art is our cup of tea and we want to spread positive messages through our products and art.
My name is Maarika, I’m an illustrator, comic creator and totally not a goblin (or am I?). I design all the products and I ship every order by myself, so basically I do everything in this house.
I created Teacup Goblins to provide uplifting art and give something back to the causes I care about. That’s why a percentage of all proceeds from Teacup Goblins products goes towards charity. Every single sale makes a difference.
Goblins give back
Currently 10% of all profits go to charity to support the local animal shelter in my hometown.
Teacup Goblins fully supports LGBTQA+ rights, animal rights / veganism, the straight-edge movement, and opposes all forms of discrimination and oppression. I believe diversity is going to be the future for this planet and I want my art to reflect that. Want to suggest organizations for donations that reflect these values? Do tell!
What does Teacup Goblins mean?
Tea is a warm relaxing drink, and one of the greatest things humanity has invented, so that’s it. That’s the meaning. And by goblins I mean cats, specifically sphynxes (the naked wrinkly cats). I love every cat but the reason I chose sphynxes is because they look different from other cats and they are often judged because of that. Teacup Goblins celebrates what makes us different and unique.
