Bruno is a gorgeous teddy bear made from beautiful, short pile jet black mohair that has delicately aged to give him a vintage look and feel. He wears an adorable made to measure, cream jersey cotton t-shirt finished with an appliqued motif and an antique lace scarf. He has boot-button style eyes highlighted with white felt and a deliberately haphazardly hand-stitched nose, mouth and claws. He is partially filled with poly-pellets and shot to give him a lovely heavy weight and a slouching posture.
Bruno is a one-of-a-kind teddy bear and is made exclusively for The Bear Garden.
