Founded in 1902, Maharam is North America’s leading creator of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design, Maharam embraces a range of disciplines from product, graphic and digital design to art and architecture. Maharam textiles are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, among others.
Initially created for the PIN–UP Fall/Winter 2016/2017 issue, the Bear is handmade by a small-scale Canadian producer from Loam, a high-quality Italian nubuck with a matte, velvety surface that’s one of eight qualities included in Maharam’s inaugural leather collection launched last fall. Tightly compacted with a recycled polyester fill, the Bear features a finely detailed zigzag stitch on its back and subtle branding on its bottom leg. Unlike similar designs, the Maharam Bear purposely omits common embellishments, like facial features, opting instead for a plain exterior in five understated shades of terracotta, cornflower blue, olive green, deep ivy, and ash black.
