Cloth tiger has been a popular folk art in China, especially as toys/dolls for kids.
Chinese people believe that there is a large Chinese character "王" on the forehead of the tigers. 王 in Chinese means "king" and therefore the tiger is believed to be King of the animals, and the symbol of courage, health and power.
In ancient times, people thought that children getting ill was caused by evil spirits and ghosts, so they sewed cloth into tiger figures to protect their children from illness and bring peace and luck. Also, families would give newborn babies hats, shoes or plush toys adorned with tiger prints and embroidery.
