Cashmere Hand-knit Teddy
Dutch designer Anne-Claire Petit studied textile design at Eindhoven, where she developed an abiding love of traditional craftsmanship. Her designs are hand-fashioned in the countryside villages of Northern China, where women have passed on their handwork traditions for generations: knitting and crocheting is part of their cultural and craft heritage. The women work at home, often together with their neighbors. They determine their own work schedule, so they can spend time with their kids and take care of the harvest.
Teddy is hand-knitted of cashmere and is 8 3/4 inches high.
