KAI (KERMODE BEAR)
Kai is based on a young Kermode bear with an amazing amount of detail and an absolutely wonderful face. The Kermode bear, or ‘spirit bear’ is a pale, but not albino, sub species of the American black bear. Kai is made using a quality, dense, 24mm alpaca with a slightly shaggy texture and his muzzle is creamy brown mohair; both given subtle airbrushed shading similar to their natural colouring. He has our subtle open mouth combined with the Bear Bits naturally shaped, embroidered nose together with 8 joints (two in the neck and one in each wrist), quilted 3D pads and an internal ‘backbone’ - an armature that supports him and allows him to be posed more flexibly than if he was hard stuffed so he looks good in a variety of natural positions.
