  • Notes: Designed as a 111th anniversary tartan to celebrate the teddy bear, the soft toy originating from a Mississippi bear hunt on 14th November 1902, where President Theodore Roosevelt (nicknamed Teddy) famously refused to shoot an injured Black Bear tied to a willow tree. The tartan represents Roosevelt, his bear hunt and the resultant political cartoon (printed two days later in the Washington Post) which inspired the creation of 'Teddy's Bear'. Colours: 26 grey threads represent Roosevelt the 26th US President whose image is carved in grey granite of Mount Rushmore; six black threads pays tribute to Roosevelt's 1906 Nobel Peace Prize, with black and beige together representing the American Black Bear; brown represents the traditional colour of the teddy bear, with 32 threads referring to Mississippi as the 32nd largest US state; green represents the willow tree; white is a tribute to the White House, officially named by Roosevelt in 1901. Significantly the geometry is created from the two relevant dates; 14th November 1902 as 14, 11, 19 and 2 threads; 16th November 1902 as 16, 11, 19 and 2 threads. A corporate tartan for S P Sim, trading as the Eleventy-One Teddy Bears Company. Intended for use in the creation of a range of limited edition Scottish produced teddy bears, and associated products.
