Engineered Garments

Stuffed Animal Bear - Olive Cotton Ripstop

Junichi Nakane is a Japanese artist who wants to connect people and bring some good to the world. He does this through Kumanokoido stuffed animals, whose sales benefit local communities in Mali, Africa. Originally starting with teddy bears, Mr Nakane has branched out to other African animals with Engineered Garments, crafting them with leftover fabric from each season.

The teddy bear is the original Kumanokoido animal and remains both the inspiration behind the name and the most recognisable style. Although based on an animal, the teddy bear is more representative of humankind than anything else. All around the globe, teddy bears are the companions, sidekicks and best friends of young children no matter where they are. With Nakane’s project, the idea of togetherness and a single world community is perfectly symbolised with the teddy.
