Soft animals

The first collection was released in 1989 and was sold through mailorder. The material in the bears and rabbits was synthetic fur, in the dolls stretch terry. They where stuffed and emroidered by hand which gave each one personality.

Soon the materials where exchanged to velours which gave the soft furry look. When the orders where increasing a collaboration with a sewing manufactor i Sweden started. When they closed down in 1999 an attempt to make them in Thailand ended with a pile of bears looking like foxes with narrow noses…

Now I make all the soft toys in my own studio again and keep it at a low level. The basic bears and rabbits have new friends now and then like these penguins in striped velours.
