  • Profile

    Celebrated for its iconic hand-embroidered teddy bears, Taunina is a luxury atelier synonymous with timeless artistry and social upliftment.
    Based in South Africa, the company employs women from disadvantaged communities to craft its one-of-a-kind heirlooms. Each creation is unique, designed and embellished by a single artist over a period of four to seven days.  The rare beauty of a Taunina collection piece lies in the opportunity it affords a woman in need to use her traditional artistry and cultural heritage to provide for her family and be recognised for her exceptional artistic skill.
    Taunina signature teddy bears have become coveted collectors’ items around the world. Each creation is a work of art, a talisman to be passed from one generation to the next. It is a gift that changes lives.  The name Taunina is an anagram of the Sotho word ’tau’, meaning ’lion’, and ’NINA’, an acronym for ’No Income, No Assets’. Taunina gives women who were once without income and assets the power to become lions of their own destinies.
