The item has been put together with Teddy bears of different sizes and colors, creating a structure with different volumes. In addition, some of the bears wear masks to cover their faces and thus free the children's. Children reflect an attitude of melancholy and uncertainty. The designer wanted to use a very classic element in a child's childhood, teddy bears. Along with the stuffed animals we can appreciate the classic maroon corduroy fabric, thus closing a classic and very childish look.

In the face of fear and uncertainty, children have been forced to stay at home during this most crucial time of their lives, in hopes of stopping the spread of COVID-19.

They have been robbed of their freedom, of playing in the streets and parks with their friends, of going to school, while constantly feeling the anxiety and frustrations of their caregivers. This can be terribly tough on kids, especially the youngest children, like babies, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners.

Children express their thoughts and feelings through art and play. They engage in creative outlets to share their experiences, relieve stress and work through what occurs in their lives. Children lack the developmental ability and life experience to understand, verbally express and process difficult, adverse or traumatic experiences. For that reason freedom of creative expression and play, is so very important.

Over 168 millions of children have lost almost a year of school and human interaction because of COVID-19, and we believe this problem has received far too little attention. That is why we wanted to create this strong piece of art, based on clothes, focusing exclusively on them: the little children.
