Memory Bears are very special Bears indeed. These days people are far less likely to stay in one place and often move far from their home towns and their families and loved ones. We also tend to have less space in our homes and the space we do have is reserved for useful functional items. This means that many people have far fewer connections to people, places, and happy memories than they had in the Past.
A memory Bear is handmade from a piece of fabric or item of clothing which means something to the owner. This could be an old T-shirt from a favourite band, a pair of curtains from your first house, or perhaps something which belonged to a loved one who is no longer with us. The bear can then be kept and handed on to future generations as a permanent reminder of happy memories.
Each Bear is made to order so there are several designs to choose from and we can use virtually any fabric, though some are easier to work with than others. If you are interested in a memory Bear please drop in to see us or send us an email and we discuss the process with you in more detail.
This Bear was made from a pair of jeans and a shirt. He has a Mohair head, jointed legs, and non jointed arms. This bear uses safety eyes and joints so is suitable for children.
