Taunina: Gifts With Soul
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Enough with the ties and plastic toys. Cape-Town based Taunina is a powerful call to consume and dispose of less, and appreciate and cherish more.
Representing the intersection of art, commerce and social consciousness, Taunina employs women from disadvantaged communities to lovingly handcraft one-of-a-kind heirloom-quality decorative stuffed animals. Each is embellished with exquisite embroidery and sculpted with heritage fabrics from iconic textile houses such as Liberty of London. "These gorgeous Taunina collectable soft toys caught our eye, and the story caught our heart." - Fairlady, August 2012
"In receiving a Taunina teddy bear, adults and children are exposed first hand to global and social issues, impassioning them with a desire to change the world. In gifting someone a Taunina bear, the giver grows the recipient's world, achieves measurable social impact, and is recognized as a catalyst for change." - Home-dzine.co.za, October 2012
