This teddy bear is made by Kapital clothing from Japan. Teddy bears are going way back. The teddy bear is a soft toy in the form of a bear. Developed apparently by toymakers Morris Michtom in the US and Richard Steiff in Germany in the early years of the 20th century, and named after President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, Jr. Kapital used for this teddy bear blue indigo rags to create the look of the old Japanese boro’s. The teddy has a great pallet of blue shades. Pretty cool friend for the small indigo kids!
