Meet the Maker: Leluna Star
Foster Creativity. Spark Imagination.
That isn't just a tagline for Leluna Star. It's a way of life.
I am Leah Mancini (Lilu) and as the owner and creator of Leluna Star, located in Cary, NC, I have been crafting and sewing for more than 25 years. I have always loved to create unique and personalized gifts for friends and family and it has blossomed into a business that I am proud of.
When my daughter was born 7 years ago, I started searching for toys that encouraged creativity and imagination - both things that were a big part of my life growing up.
Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot to be found. In turn, I began creating products with that in mind. Items that allowed children to play and imagine how they saw fit. If the princess wanted to rescue the superhero ~ let's make it happen!
As I created more and then put together a website for my business, I realized the next step was getting out in front of my local community. I began selling at local craft fairs and pop-up markets and loved meeting new and previous customers.
Our focus at Leluna Star is all about creating products for the young (and young at heart) that bring a smile to your face, joy to your heart and a little imagination to your day.
We create dress up items like crowns, wands, felt masks and bracelets that are great for playtime and sparking imagination. We also make gift-giving items - to keep or give - like our bookmarks, key chains, bags and art - all made with our commercial embroidery machines. We are always adding to our designs and would love to create for you.
