In the 1960s, the German company DERU launched a whole range of leather animals. More than half a century later, these cool animals have become very expensive collectors' items.
This is a fantastically beautiful vintage DERU leather origami elephant. This cute and expressive figure is folded from a single piece of leather that is cleverly shaped and sewn into an irresistible elephant. All Deru animals are handmade, so no two are the same.
They were designed and produced by the German manufacturer DERU in Wiesbaden in the 1960s. This company made beautiful figures of different animals with an origami-like technique. The animals are made from 1 piece of leather in a very clever way.
Due to their stylised appearance, they have become highly sought after and collectable today.
