CHAO (PANDA)
This wonderful big panda is made from 25mm dense ivory and black alpaca – it both looks and feels superb. He is very detailed and has many characteristics of a real panda. Chao’s eye patches are sewn in to the side head piece before the head is sewn and black glass eyes are set into the them. The dense structure of the alpaca pile has been trimmed to give him a beautifully shaped muzzle and his intricately embroidered nose is based on the shape of a natural panda. If you study real pandas, the black marking on their body is narrower on their back than it is on the front – and this too can be seen on Chao’s body which is finished off with a small tail; likewise, the black on a panda’s back legs does not go completely to the top. Chao’s ears are shaped and sewn on to look like those of a real panda (which are very different from those of a bear!) He has black ultrasuede pads and his body is partly filled with polypellets making him quite a weighty cuddle!
