Celebrated for its iconic hand-embroidered teddy bears, Taunina is a luxury house synonymous with timeless artistry and social upliftment. The company provides full-time employment to women from disadvantaged communities in Africa through its atelier in Cape Town.

Each creation is one of a kind, designed and embellished by a single artist over five to seven days. The rare beauty of a Taunina collection piece lies in the opportunity it affords a woman in need to use traditional hand-skills to provide for her family and be recognised as an artist. Taunina bears carry the initials of the women who make them, symbolic of their sense of dignity and pride. A Taunina creation is a work of art, an heirloom to be passed from one generation to the next. It is a gift that changes lives.

Mosuo has been individually designed and hand-embroidered by Zimbabwean artist Rudo Zenda. Inspired by the creative spirit of Amsterdam, the vibrant palate weaves together an intricate tapestry evocative of the lively city and its people. Mosuo is a magnum opus.
