As a bear designer and creator, I usually sell locally to my home. I have decided to place a few of my bears in my shop. Because of the time involved in the whole process, from idea to finished product, there is a limited number that I can produce each year. Every bear I make is hand sewn by me. It is a process of love. My bears are very high quality. I have invested a great deal of time into their creation so I use only the best in making my bears. The mohair is imported from Germany, my favorite fabric for bears.
I used a dense, curly mohair for Annabelle. I kept her hair long as it adds to her appeal. You will never hold a softer bear in your hand. Her paws and feet are Ultra Suede. She has beautiful imported black glass eyes. They have a lively look. Her burgundy bow is silk. She wears a little ruffled collar that closes with a clear snap in the back. I sew all my bears outfits. Both can be removed if you want to change out her outfit. And who doesn't. This little bear measures approximately 5 inches in height and fits in the palm of your hand.
My bears are adult collectibles and not suited to young children. A young teen can start a collection with these bears. Since I expect my bears to last a life time, I usually go with a traditional look. Trends come and go. Some last only a short period.
I include a Mohair bear care sheet with each bear. It helps you protect your investment.
