TBAAF - Purchase Directly From International Bear and Doll Artists

About Me

I clearly remember a much loved teddy and pink & cream elephant I owned as a child, spending hours pushing them around in a toy pushchair. They are long lost but not forgotten.

 

I love to create beautiful collectible bears which evoke a feeling of nostalgia. Making real the memories of yesterday, childhood games and companions.

All of my creations are made with the finest German alpaca or mohair fabric, often had dyed to emulate a vintage look and feel. Every bear has 5 loose joints and stuffed with steel weightings for that heavy, 'flumphy' feeling. Flumphy is my made up word which you will only understand when you hold a bear.

After the steel weightings the bear is topped up with pure alpaca fleece, gathered from the alpacas on my farm www.lymealpacas.co.uk in Lyme Regis, England. All bears have handmade glass eyes, embroidered and waxed noses and display a variety of levels of distress for that, 'left in the loft' expression.

Where possible I source vintage fabrics and accessories to enhance the aged romantic look of the piece or use vegetable dyes to hand dye newer fabrics for the desired effect.
