Limited Editions
For several years, the design team at Kösen had been studying real life animals intensively in order to design their plush animals as life-like as possible.  An important part is watching the animals at the zoo or even at national parks, like:  black bears in Canada, lions in Kenya,orangutans on Sumatra, rhinoceroses in Namibia…. and many others.  This intensive experience and learning in the wild is the basis for grasping the nature of animals and to express it in Kösen’s life-like plush animals.

As all our animals are handmade, sizes and weights are approximate measurements – no two animals are alike. Additionally, stock images are used in many cases, which may not reflect the precise coloring or facial expression of the animal you receive. Various computer screen resolutions may also affect your view of coloring, as well as the pose of the animal in the image.  Many items are made-to-order, and so we request and recommend that you ask any/all questions prior to ordering. Please note: our animals are meant to be for collectors or display pieces unless otherwise noted.

Over the past years, the abilities of the cutters, seamstresses and trimesters have improved enormously.  New technologies were tested, proven ones have been perfected.  The craftsmanship of creating the animals keeps getting more and more refined.  Therefore, Kösen has the wish and the urge to demonstrate their proficiency not only in series production but also in exclusive and limited editions.  In this way the beauty of the animals become quite an experience both for collectors and animal lover.

The artists at Kösen have been making luxurious and treasured collections for over 100 years.

The designers at Kösen study and draw the animals in their natural habitats or zoos.  Then they produce clay models which are revised over and over until their vision for the animal is realized.  Because the designers have an eye for special details, the faces are particularly lifelike.

Just one animal can require up to seventy individual pieces of the finest hand-picked fabrics and then finished with its own detailed characteristics.

Large Pandas are very rare and are threatened by extinction.  Only a few people are lucky enough to see them in the wilderness.
Even in zoos they are rare.  Only two bears live in Germany, in the Berlin Zoo.  For years they have been waiting ardently for cubs to be born.
Additionally to the studies and drawings of the pandas in the Zoo, our designers have been studying photos of pandas living in the wild in China.  They were surprised that in their natural environment they even seem more magnificent, their fur looks longer, softer and is full of contrast, it is thick and water repellent, optimally suited for their life in the humid environment of the mountain forests.  Another adaptation is a kind of sixth finger.  With it, they can grab their favourite food, the bamboo stalks, better.  In order to depict the exact details, the Kösen artists tried something new.  For the first time they are using precious faux fur made of alpaca wood, which feels wonderfully soft.  For the paws fine imitation leather was embroidered in order for the pads to look raised.
The fluffy baby panda shall express hope, that especially in their home a lot of panda babies will be born and can grow up undisturbed.
