Tender’s rabbit is hand cut and completely hand sewn in England, from heavyweight English-woven cotton mattress ticking.
The rabbit is traditionally stuffed with natural wood ‘wool’, giving her a sturdy, firm feel and a nice robust weight, and a Tender red blanket label is sewn onto her tummy. The tail is appropriately tufted.
Stuffed-animal-making started as an offshoot of the upholstery trade, and this bunny is made in the same way, by drawing seams together over a tight stuffing in a ladder stitch. Steel shot is set into the feet, so that she sits firmly upright.
Rather than being overly anthropomorphised, Tenders animals are modelled after a real creatures. The rabbit has been hand made and does not meet child’s toy safety standards- intended for grown-ups only. She measures approximately 11″ (28cm) from ears to tail.
