About the Tastex Knitwear Inc. and the Envirowoolly® Range
Tastex Knitwear Inc. is a Tasmanian manufacturer of premium quality knitwear products. It has a reputation for unsurpassed quality and workmanship. You can see this for yourself in the Tastex Envirowoolly® range of teddy bears and soft toys.
Unsurpassed Quality and Workmanship
Their founding purpose is to provide employment and training for people with intellectual disabilities, and this continues to be a guiding principal. However Tastex must also be self-funding through commercially viable activities. One such activity is the promotion of their Envirowoolly® products.
Like nothing else you’ll hold, or hug to your face
Tastex is recognised for making bespoke materials, just like the dense and fluffy filler for their Envirowoolly® teddy bears. It’s another reason why these animal teddies are like nothing else you’ll ever hold, or hug to your face.
A Proud Association, an Inspiring Business
Product of Tasmania is excited to stock these fantastic Envirowoolly® soft toys. We are very proud to be associated with Tastex, and of course we wish their team every success they deserve. For all their hard work, their dedication, as well as their passion, for improving the quality of life of others.
Hand-crafted Embroidery that comes to LIFE! Everyone will LOVE your Envirowoolly®
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. These teddies are made with quality and pride together with quality materials, so they’re tough and durable.

Tastex: an Australian Disability Enterprise, a Not-for-Profit Enterprise
- Off-cuts of Australian Wool are gathered. These are usually recycled materials that are 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. And then they are used as the filler for every Envirowoolly®
- Different animal shapes are packed with filler, and then 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!
