The history of the Teddy bear
For the huge success, Teddy bears in the United States is actually president Theodore – Teddy-Roosevelt responsible. In 1902 he had during a bear-hunting refused to kill a young defenceless bear. The famous cartoonist Clifford Berryman of The Washington Post portrayed the event in a cartoon. From that moment the bear became known as "Teddy's Bear" and Berryman incorporated the bear in all his cartoons about the president. These cartoons were the very best advertising for Steiff bears and soon the Steiff "Teddy bear" had stolen the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Americans. Partly fed by the stream Steiffberen from Germany the "Teddy bears-Mania" took ever more America in its grip and also other parts of the world.
The Heinen Delft blue story
It starts at the end of 70 years when Jaap Heinen who draws and paints in Japanese and Chinese Imari style, also starts to paint in in Delft blue. In Putten, he begins a small atelier in which he also glazes and bakes. His son Jorrit joins. When - starting from 2007 - the demand for hand-painted Delft blue falls back, Jaap and Jorrit open an own factory in China which produces in Putten designed earthenware, focused on the souvenir market. The hand painting, however, remains a passion and it grows again in popularity since 2015. Employing the best designers, decorators and ceramic-technicians and with love for the centuries-old Delft blue craft, Heinen brings Delft blue tradition and innovation: Creating new traditions.
