The heart of our stuffed animals, made of Pima cotton.

How is it possible that your cuddly toys are ecological, if they are made on the other side of the planet? This is a question we are often asked, but it is no coincidence that our soft toys are made in Peru. It is precisely there, where one of the most valuable varieties of organic cotton in the world is cultivated: the Pima cotton.

Why is it important to use organic cotton?

In many cases we neglect how vital it is to use quality raw materials in the manufacture of some of their toys as well; especially in the manufacture of their toys. cuddly toys. After all, they are in contact with their skin for many hours every day.
