Polka Dot Club: Bear - Rust
Welcome to the Polka Dot Club!
Handmade with patience and care, the POLKA DOT CLUB is a collection of heritage toys created by second-generation teddy bear maker Jen Murphy. Each piece is made using natural materials and techniques employed by the finest toy makers over 100 years ago, all the while adding contemporary elements bringing heritage toy making into the 21st century.
PDC toys are hand-made in Minneapolis, USA but Jen recently expanded the studio to include a small group of sewers in Lima, Peru. This collaboration has been a powerful one. It’s not fast, inexpensive, nor easy to work in Peru, but it is meaningful. This sewing group was started to support hearing impaired women and now employs a handful of very talented sewers.
