HERMANN Flower Bears
The HERMANN ”Flower Bears“ are a special Teddy Bear series. With this we want to introduce the beauty of several little flowers, which grow throughout the year in our home meadows. Very little miniature bells with their light, hardly perceptible sound, which are fixed on the dressing of the Bears, shall let us feel the rush of the wind in our meadows and fields.
The Cornflower – the “Blue Flower” of the Romantic
The cornflower grows at the sideline of cornfields. A long time the cornflower was ranked as field weed and for that it was combated so successfully, that it is nearly extinct. Therefore the cornflower is a protected plant today, to preserve it for our flora. In the historico-cultural epoch of the Romantic from the end of the 18th century until away into the 19th century, the cornflower was seen as the “Blue Flower” of the Romantic. It became symbol of the new naturalness and about 1810 with the creation of myths about the short-lived Queen Louise the cornflower raised to the “Prussian Flower”. The cornflower is also appreciated in England, and Prince Charles wears it often in his buttonhole.
Mohair is made from one of nature`s finest sources for natural fiber, the Angora goat. This special fur is very long and naturally wavy. When sheared (this usually occurs twice a year) it is called mohair. The term "mohair" is derived from the Arabian word "Muhayar" which literally means "the fabric of goat hair". Despite the name similarity there is no relation to the Angora rabbit.
The collection of this noble hair does not require any animals to be harmed!
Angora goats are a delicate animal and are very sensitive to temperature change. This requires a dependable mild climate. Summers not so hot that the meadows dry out and winters not too cold. In the entire world there are only three regions that consistently meet these ideal conditions: Texas, USA, South Africa and Turkey.
The fur of the Angora go at is naturally white, curly and shiny. Its fibers have a remarkable strength when made into a pile fabric. These characteristics together with the noble appearance, silky feel and sheen make mohair one of the finest fibers offered by nature.
