It’s a design that dates back to the 1960s, so it is fair to say that Laurie The Lion is no flash in the pan.
The super-cute lions are ethically produced in Sri Lanka, hand made from hand-woven cotton, then stuffed with kapok and shipped slowly by sea to Cornwall. Nothing is done with any haste here.
As each lion is handmade by a single person, each one is unlikely to be identical. Or in other words, your Laurie will be unique.
Two sizes to choose from, the large lion above, which sells for £65 and the smaller one, which you can see with his big brother below, selling for £34.50. Both are available from Shelf.
