German designer Andreas Linzner became obsessed with the Terry towelling material on his hunts around flea markets. He started using it in his artwork in pictures and collages, but then moved onto making toy animals from it. Now he travels the world looking for the material to recycle into toys like the Andreas Linzner Giraffe, so each one is made from carefully selected fabric.
Luxeville have several of his giraffe toys in stock, each made of different towelling material and each with its own name – the one pictured here is Pia, but you can also choose from Monica (lilac, white and blue crysanthamum print) or Jan (large flowers in brown, white and orange).
They cost £35 each – visit Luxeville to see the full range.
