General Information

A unique piece of design and workmanship: stuffed animals from the Kösen workshops.

In addition to their workmanship they display the highest level of design. Each of the Kösen stuffed animals is created with a love for detail. They are sewn from more than 70 separate sections which are made of different colors, hair lengths and structure from European woven plush, the secret behind authentically depicting the characteristic features of the animals. Often more than ten plushes of different colors and hair lengths are used for one animal. In order for them to retain their shape, the animals are filled with a stuffing made of siliconized hollow fiber which underscores the natural fidelity of their design. Their eyes are non-removable safety eyes. Every design is based on extensive anatomical observations and motion studies in nature and in the zoo. Then come the sketches and first models made of clay. That is the only way to make such natural (and not just „sweet “) stuffed animals like those in Bad Kösen. Winners of many awards, they have also become collectors‘ items for the display case. But mainly they are intended to live out their lives in the children’s room. The first Kösen puppet factory was founded in 1912 by Käthe Kruse. She left the GDR in 1949, but the more than four decades of special experience in puppet making remained. A shift was made to stuffed animals, and thanks to what has become a long collaboration with the neighboring Burg Giebichenstein, since the beginning of the 20th century one of the most important training centers for product design in Germany, the design standards steadily rose.

A tip:

If it should become necessary the Kösen animals can be gently hand washed, but only those with a short plush fur should be dried in a drier.
