This one of a kind Teddy Bear has been lovingly hand sewn, using my unique eco-printed silk fabric, into a squeezable, huggable plush bear! It is 27" long (or high if he stood upright) x about 6" wide in the tummy. I first collected various leaves and foliage from my farm and through a natural process, imprinted them onto silk noil fabric, which is "raw silk" a heavier, beautifully draping silk perfect for clothing, shawls, handbags and as you see, my charming stuffed bunnies and bears! The colors you are seeing in the plant design are the actual colors released to me by Nature on that day! This Teddy Bear was designed with the fabric in mind. You cannot find my silk anywhere else nor this pattern from pecan and maple leaves. The very pale pink comes from cochineal-an ancient, natural dye. A beautiful contrasting cotton was used to highlight the paws and feet. In all, a very vintage looking Teddy Bear! Comes with optional button eyes. (see images) Suitable for a child under 4 with button eyes removed. If you are into sustainable, eco-friendly soft sculpture then my bears and bunnies are for you and your home! A unique and unusual gift that is sure to make a statement! Comes with a story of its provenance. Can be gently handwashed in warm water and air dried.
