Crafted from beautifully soft velvet and linen, this penguin is completely handmade in my studio on the Isle of Wight. Don’t worry though, just because he’s made on the sunniest island in Britain it doesn’t mean he’s not prepared for every eventuality. With his real leather satchel of tweed fish to stave off hunger on long journeys and his woven tweed scarf to keep him warm, he’s ready for big adventures.
He’ll make the perfect gift for any penguin loving child or adult (is there anyone that doesn’t love a penguin?). And because you know exactly where they are made you can give a gift knowing it’s sustainable and long lasting. We’re talking heirlooms here, not landfill.
Need To Know:
The penguin is made from dark navy 100% cotton velvet (main body) and white linen.
His beak is orange corduroy and his feet are leather.
His eyes are embroidered and hand sewn on.
He is stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing and has a small bag of (uncooked) rice in his bottom (to weigh him down slightly). Although he has a little extra weight to his bottom (like so many of us) he’s not heavy and would make a rubbish door stop, sorry.
His satchel is made of leather and his three fish are made of tweed and are stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing and don’t smell at all fishy. His scarf is tweed and linen and can be removed.
Although he’s pretty sure he’s a King penguin, he’s not quite as tall as one, standing at approximately 34 cm’s tall.
Because he is made of velvet and has a small bag of rice in him, it’s best to only gently spot wash him. No machine washing I’m afraid.
Please do note that the colour of the satchel may be different to the one in the photo..
