What is an Envirowoolly®?

The Envirowoolly® range is a collection of soft toys (or teddy bears), each resembling Australian animals. Each teddie is individually made, with care and love. And they all have a heart-warming story to tell.

These unique Australian animal teddies are one-of-a-kind. They are made with quality and pride together with quality materials, so they’re tough and durable.

The DELIGHTFUL texture of the fabric. The STRIKING quality of the embroidery. These feel AMAZING!

Several Tasmanian outlets are now stockists, including The Tasmanian Devil Park, Bonorong Wildlife SanctuaryMade in Tasmania Salamanca, the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery.

Saffire Freycinet has officially adopted the Tasmanian Devil Envirowoolly® as part of its Save the Tasmanian Devil Program.

Tastex: an Australian Disability Enterprise, a Not-for-Profit Enterprise

Production Process

  • Australian Wool off-cuts of are gathered. These are usually recycled materials, left over from making uniforms and workwear.
  • An industrial steaming process, which uses special machinery, pulls all of the materials apart.
  • These pieces of material become wriggly and springy. They are then used as the filler for every Envirowoolly®.
  • Different animal shapes are packed with filler. Then they are sewn and sealed up. Most of this sewing is done by hand.
  • Each Envirowoolly® is lovingly brought to life with individually hand-crafted embroidery.

Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly, Cute and Cuddly!
