Guardians of hopes and dreams, Taunina bears share the stories of the women who create them. Individually designed and hand-embroidered by a single Taunina artist, each treasure is a talisman to be cherished and gifted from one loved one to another. These very special bears travel the world in handcrafted hatboxes, each with his or her very own bespoke passport. Three trademarks guarantee your Taunina bear is an original:
• A unique passport, including your Taunina bear's name, date of birth and details of the artist who made him or her
• A Taunina trademark teddy bear label in the left ear
• A woven Taunina ID stamp, reflecting the artist’s initials and your Taunina bear's unique identification.
Taunina bears are handmade in a light-filled atelier in Cape Town's design district of Woodstock. Created with immense love, each one carries the initials of the woman who made him. These initials are so much more than a signature stamp: They represent the sense of achievement and self-worth that comes from being respected as an artist.
