Portraits in Nature, is a hand-crafted collection of realistic plush animals.  Artists working in a socially and environmentally responsible studio create each animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat.

The “coat” of each character is meticulously cut by hand, never stamped out by machine.  Fabric for the spotted and striped animals is custom designed and manufactured in small lots to explicit specifications.  Gentle paws, swishing tails, and soulful eyes and faces are lovingly detailed to give each character the life-like look.

These animals appeal to collectors and animal lovers of all ages.  The life-sized pieces have exceptionally strong, yet lightweight, structural metal frames and can even be “ridden” by children and adults up to 250lbs.  Each piece comes with a teaching tag describing, in detail, the animal’s habitat, lifestyle, gestation period, care of young, and eating habits.  Made inGermany.
