Info & Materials
Over 150 years ago, the first teddy bears were designed and made out of mohair and we think it's still the best fabric for the job. Our fabric is carefully woven on one of only a few looms left in the world: mohair fibers (sheared from the mohair goat) are looped onto cotton backing, creating a 100% natural fur that's durable, beautiful, and totally unique.
Cotton Stuffing: We want what's inside to be just as good as what's on the outside, for that reason we use 100% Cotton grown in the USA.
Our cotton stuffing has never been processed and contains no bleaches, dyes, fire retardants, or fungicides. More over, we use the leftover fiber discarded by the textile industry, putting to use what was previously seen as waste. That's good for us, good for your little ones, and good for the planet.
Soft-Poly Stuffing: Poly-fill has it's place! We use it in our PDC Bears, PDC Bigger Bears for a soft squishy feel, and in the Rattle Balls to ensure ease of washing and drying.
Life can be messy, especially where kids are involved. It's important to us that we're able to clean it up now and again. For that reason washing instructions are so listed for all PDC BEARS. See MATERIALS & CARE for all the details!
LONG LIVE THE POLKA DOT CLUB.
