How to Order

These bears can be made in almost any clothing or fabric you wish.  They are handmade in Manchester, England to a very high standard, they take many hours to complete including lots of time spent on hand sewing and embroidery.

The are quite substantial in size around the same size as a new born baby, they are crafted using a traditional method. The beautiful vintage style of the bears make them very desirable , they are very sturdy and have moving joints, connected using buttons so are posable and sit very nicely.

They are designed as a keepsake and not a toy, as they are individual they cannot be tested to obtain a safety certificate. So not suitable for children under 12, because of choking risk from small parts.

I can use most types of clothing, hats and accessories, uniforms, wedding dresses, baby clothing, themed fabric, textiles,  made from stretch or non stretch fabric.

Ideally I would like at least 3 items of adult clothing, or 6 items of baby clothing.

Please note:

Memory bears are handmade with care but are  intented as a keepsake not a toy, so are unsuitable for children under the age of 12. They must be kept out of reach of young children as they contain small parts which could possibly work loose over time and become a choking hazard. They have not been tested to receive the CE safety certificate, to be legally sold as a toy, this would be impossible to do as the bears are made from different clothing each time. However we do use safety eyes and non flamable toy filling.
