Each bear is handmade using my own traditional style pattern and natural materials. Patterns are individually cut freehand for each bear so they each have their own adorable expression.
Theo and a few of his cousins came with me to a little holiday in the cabin in the woods (www.bulworthy.uk which is a wonderful eco woodland project). He is such a sweet little fellow who just loved exploring the woods. He had no fear at all and there were a few heart stopping moments when he decided he wanted to climb the trees.
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 an embroidered nose. Their limbs and body are weighted with steel pellets, which are recycled and sustainably washed. They are stuffed with the softest 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 (Free Postage in the UK) and tracked and signed internationally.
The bears make excellent gifts to announce the birth of new babies to grandparents, 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. I will consider custom bears and accessories eg. Personalised gift card and or felt birthday numbers or balloons, graduation caps, start up a conversation with me and I’ll be very glad to help.
