And this is why...

The Greenland Fishery has been associated with maritime heritage, especially whaling, since the 1700s, and The Greenland Fishery Project is keeping that association alive, without harm to whales or the environment in any way.

Our collection is arranged with respect and homage to Chapter 32 of Moby Dick, ‘Cetology’ in which Melville uses a unique method of classification - all based around traditional book sizes: So the Folio Whales are the biggest; The Blue, Finback, Sperm, Bowhead, Greenland Right and Humpback Whales. The Octavo Whales are The Orca, Narwhal, and Minke Whale. The Duodecimal Whales are The Dolphin and various calves. And the Octodecimal category includes Walrus, Smalrus and various accessories.

They're all made from real leather offcuts and reclaimed pieces, so each one is unique, often with marks and imperfections - a bit like the real thing. The stuffing is a natural felt/flock substance. The little beady eye represents a potential risk to small children, so it can't be recommended as a child's toy - but that's your call.
The whales shown here are examples only and the colours and textures are unlikely to be replicated so we urge you to see and feel the whales before you buy and you can do that by visiting us here at The Greenland Fishery, or at our weekly market stall at All Saints Art and Craft Market in Cambridge.
