Green Loong Plush Toy

Propitious & Lucy

Green Loong's design incorporates numerous elements of traditional Chinese culture. The decoration on the forehead, combining jade and yellow jade, symbolizes "protection" and "blessing" in China and was historically reserved for royalty.

The bold red eyebrows paired with eyes in red, purple, and blue symbolize "warding off evil spirits" in Chinese culture. These intricate details are intended to bring peace and luck to the wearer.

Every stitch weaves a soul. The Green Loong plush toy goes through 19 steps from sketch to finish, requiring 119 hours of meticulous hand-sewing by experienced craftsmen.

Details Reflecting Everything

From the side, we can observe even more intricate details. The large, soft, and elongated whiskers made of mercerized cotton resemble lightning.

The red wings shaped like lightning bolts, along with the bright yellow horns on the head, combined with various embroidery techniques, make the Green Loong appear more three-dimensional and majestic.

Organic Plant Dyes

The fabric of Green Loong comes from traditional handwoven cloth made by ethnic minorities in Guizhou. It is soft to the touch with a subtle grainy texture. The colors are created using environmentally friendly and harmless plant-based dyes. Each Plush Toy's surface has a unique color and texture.

Handmade with Care

The stitching is natural; the cotton filling is firm. Each Green Loong is crafted by a different ethnic minority artisan, making it not just a plush toy, but a cultural and artisanal heritage.

In traditional Chinese culture, bright yellow represents "wealth" and "royalty," a color reserved only for the emperor.

This Green Loong features yellow beads on its eyes and forehead, as well as at the tips of the extended antennae, mimicking the crown worn by ancient Chinese emperors.

Mythological Design

As the foremost of the Four Auspicious Beasts in ancient Chinese mythology, Green Loong's design was inspired by extensive references to ancient texts.

From the details on its back, you can see that its form is composed of elements from real animals: the horns of a deer, the scales of a fish, and the ears of a rabbit. These elements are believed to ward off evil, avert disasters, and bring blessings.
