Taunina represents the intersection of art, commerce, and social consciousness, defined by its determination to make a difference in the world. The Cape Town-based company employs female artists from disadvantaged backgrounds to lovingly handcraft heirloom-quality stuffed animals. Each piece is one of a kind, sculpted with luxurious heritage fabrics from iconic textile houses like Liberty of London and embellished with Taunina's signature embroidery and appliqué details. Each bear and bunny travels with a handmade hatbox and a unique passport bearing its name, details of the artist who made it, and a special code that allows online access to the story and transformation of the artist's life.
