About this Embroidery patches story:
It is rumored that Hoffman's design of the yellow duck was inspired by the story of the duck fleet: in 1992, a cargo ship from China intended to cross the Pacific Ocean to reach Tacoma Harbor, Washington, USA, but encountered a strong storm on the way. A container filled with 29,000 bathtub toys fell into the sea and burst. The yellow duck, blue turtle and green frog inside floated to the surface of the sea. It became a huge "duck fleet" and drifted from China to the coasts of the United States and Britain.
Although the story is beautiful, Hoffman firmly denies it: "No, no, it's totally a rumor. I went to a museum in the Netherlands and found inspiration from the paintings. I saw the design of a small yellow duck in a painting. My inspiration comes from some works of art. I can't remember which specific works are all landscape paintings. I prefer to get inspiration from some paintings and then make my own artistic creation.
