Launceston, Australia
A woman uses a funnel to pour lavender into the back of a "Bobbie Bear", a lavender and wheat stuffed soft toy, at the headquarters of Tasmania's Bridestowe Lavender located near the town of Nabowla, on the outskirts of Launceston June 4, 2014. Half a dozen older ladies, all kitted out in lilac shirts, chat affably away as they rhythmically stuff and sew up the cuddly purple-coloured bears, cups of tea littering their workspace. It could easily be a women's club gathering anywhere in middle Australia, but these women are producing a teddy bear that has become a craze in China after actress and model Zhang Xinyu said it was her favourite bedtime companion. Bridestowe Lavender is one of a number of niche producers in Tasmania taking advantage of the export gold star afforded by the state's genetically modified organism free status.
