We take great pride in welcoming you to the Piutrè Animal Collection, the finest collection of realistic plush animals in the world.
The Piutrè Collection includes more than 1,000 dogs, cats, and other animals in a multitude of sizes and poses.
Originally conceived in Italy by master toy artisan Riccardo Chiavetta, the animals in the Piutrè Collection faithfully replicate their real-life counterparts in form, coloring, dimensions, and expression.
'Made Only by Hand . . . Made Only in Italy'
Our astonishingly lifelike plush animals are sewn, shaped, and finished entirely by hand in Italy, using the finest European-made fabrics and other materials.
All of the animals in the Piutrè Collection are made with fire-retardant fabrics and stuffed with pure acrylic fibers; therefore, they are hygienic and washable. The synthetic, soft-to-the-touch plush is true to life, and each piece is hand-trimmed and hand-finished for an exceptional degree of realism. The eyes and nose of each animal are extraordinarily lifelike, too—and, of course, safety-anchored.
The tag on each animal, individually signed by the master artisan who made it, is your hallmark of the legendary artistry and uncompromising craftsmanship that are, unmistakably, Piutrè.
Our small company is based in the United States, but we cherish the Italian-made plush animals we sell and, for that matter, many other hand-made Italian goods. Sadly, very few plush animals are still made in Europe from start to finish, so we are especially proud to be in the business that we are in. We have a strong commitment to honoring the tradition of excellence established by small, family-owned operations in Italy, of which Piutrè is one. It's not an overstatement to say that this has given us joy every day that we have been in business.
We thank you for your interest in Piutrè and hope that we can bring some of that joy to you as well.
