NATURAL BLACK LAMBSWOOL BEAR

£120.00 (inc VAT) £100.00 (exc VAT)

Tender's bear is hand cut and completely hand sewn in England, from naturally black lambskin, tanned in England especially for Tender from Welsh Black lambs reared in England.

The bear is traditionally weighted in the feet with steel shot, so that he stands naturally, and he is stuffed with natural wood 'wool'. The pads of his feet are made from the suede side of the black lambskin, and a Tender red blanket label is sewn onto his tummy.

Bear-making started as an offshoot of the upholstery trade, and this bear is made in the same way, by drawing seams together over a tight stuffing. While later stuffed animals were cut from mohair plush (and more recently synthetics), early toys were made from sheepskin or rabbit fur. This bear continues that tradition.

Rather than being overly anthropomorphised, this bear is modelled after a real cub, and stands properly on his suede pads, rather than sitting up. His eyes are solid black glass, and his nose and mouth are embroidered by hand.This bear has been hand made and does not meet child's toy safety standards- it is intended for grown-ups only.
