54's

View of Tarcento (UD) - 1930 History The Trudi company is founded in Tarcento (Udine). The first soft toys were created for fun, but with a lot of passion, by Mrs. Trudi Müller Patriarca when, still a teenager, she started to make with needle, thread and pieces of fabric, cute little animals for herself and for her friends.

Chick Trudi 60s The aesthetic innovation brought about by the use of new materials – extremely soft as compared to the mohair used up to that time – is combined with a revolution in the filling: the traditional straw is replaced by cotton-wool, thus making the soft toys washable and extremely huggable!

Trudi Bear 60s The collections are enriched with human-looking products, the first rocking animals and bedside rugs, which take the forms of the by now famous soft toys.

Bears in the kitchen - Trudi setting 70s Curiosity The “Trudi Bear” is born, the bear with such a charming snout that many children and adults have learnt to recognise it in the shop windows and in the magazine pictures. In these years, Trudi soft toys begin to be inspired by the real world of animals, being less puppet-like.

History These are the years of growth. Trudi’s collection is enriched to meet the requirements of an increasingly demanding market, which causes the company to continuously renovate its collections and start the production industrialization process.
