Mohair Traditional Jointed Teddy Bear Collectable Eco Gift
Jake is confident, boisterous and always getting into trouble and dragging his twin Johnny along with him. They are hoping that they will find a new home together but are happy to go off on their own adventures if this isn't possible. Jake has amber eyes (unlike his brother Johnny who is dark eyed) and golden curly mohair.
Each bear is handmade using my own traditional style pattern and natural materials. Patterns are individually cut for each bear so they each have their own adorable expression.
I use natural materials and try to source materials as locally and sustainably as possible. They therefore make excellent eco gifts. The bears have glass eyes, which are made in the UK and a hand embroidered nose. Their limbs and body are weighted with steel pellets, which are recycled and sustainably washed. They are stuffed with the finest wool batting locally sourced, washed and carded. Their left feet are hand embroidered with the DevonGrizzlies flag to help them remember their Devon home. A little red natural felt heart is placed inside their bodies when I make them. They are between 16 and 20 cm tall and sit unsupported.
They will arrive carefully packaged in a gift box and recyclable materials via Royal Mail signed for package.
During this world pandemic I have been making the bears as a mindful activity. Once they are completed and have had photos and introductions I package them ready for dispatch and then quarantine them (in a glass cabinet) so that they can be dispatched with minimum further contact. They will arrive ready for a big hug once the outer packaging has been removed.
If you are buying the gift for someone who is shielding or in isolation or for a health worker in the UK please message me first for a special discount code. I want to do what I can to bring a smile in these difficult times.
The bears make excellent gifts to announce the birth of new babies to grandparents, to congratulate a young person and celebrate a transition in their education, to wish a teenager luck when taking or revising for their exams or taking their driving test, or to commemorate a special birthday, retirements and anniversaries.
Please note that these are artists bears and have small parts and fibres, which are not suitable as toys for babies and young children.
