About

Here at cdbdi we hand make personalised toys and gifts from softly felted lambswool sourced from Yorkshire. The toy and gift range include dragons, elephants, rabbits, shrews, unicorns and duck billed platypus with a heavy lean towards anything dachshund! The toys can be personalised with a hand embroidered name sewn on to their tummy or waistband. They also come with a personalised scroll from the buyer to the recipient. cdbdi ( see the beady eyes ) was started by Vicky because she couldn't find any non mass produced British dragons for her boys when they were small. She wanted to give them something that would last, British and be handed down to the next generation so ended up making them herself. Family and friends asked for dragons for their little ones and the business grew from there.

Manufactured

All cdbdi products are hand made in London from softly felted lambswool. Vicky has designed the range and made all the patterns.

Components

The wool comes from Z.Hinchcliffe yarns in Denby Dale Yorkshire, the colour choice and quality of their yarn is second to none. It is then machine knitted in Gloucestershire and sent to cdbdi in London. Here it is washed to create the soft hard wearing fabric that is then made into unique toys and gifts.
