Teddy Bears Made Of Leftover Fabrics
The Tenue. brand by the Tenue de Nîmes stores in Amsterdam created a few limited-edition teddy bears with leftover fabrics. These leftover fabrics are coming from their tailoring service in their denim store. So, instead of throwing these away, they decided to reuse them. The bears are made with Haarlem’s Roads Ateliers program.
The Roads Ateliers Program
Roads Ateliers is a frontrunner in the Netherlands in the reintegration of people with psychiatric problems or an addiction background. Based on specific qualities, someone learns again what he or she can do. Their target group is often at a distance from the labor market. Labor is part of the recovery program because work is participation. In composite programs, they combine treatment, therapy, training, and work.
Details Of The Teddy Bears
The Tenue. teddy bears are available in three different versions; denim, ecru, and camouflage. In the denim versions all different shades of indigo fabrics are used, even selvedge lines are visible on the outside. All are made with different fabrics as a patchwork. They’re all wearing a deadstock bandana with chain stitch embroidery. Also, the bears are branded with Tenue. buttons and waistband labels.
