    Owner, Teddy Bear Artist, Maker

    Let me introduce myself: Antonella Dulio, one of the few Italian bearmakers or bear artists. I create collection bears and my brand is Cicciorsi. Every Teddy I make is an unique piece, meticulously studied in each detail, with its particular and unrepeatable personality. I start with a paper model, which I personally draw and then I copy it on the fine German mohair patch. Then, with extreme precision, I cut all the parts which are going to form the bear (usually 21 pieces). I sew the several pieces, all by hand, with a double sewing, to make the bear resistant. It's a long and meticulous work, and it's one of the most important stages of the processing. Then, i proceed with the stuffing to which i add some birdshot to make the bear heavy, and sterilyzed and dedusted farro chaff to make its little tummy more pleasant to touch. The head and the arms are assembled to the body with wood and metal junctions which allow the bear to move arms and head. In a bear, the most important thing is the face expression, because that is what gives personality to each teddy. To obtain the sweet look that distinguishes my bears I study the ideal position for the eyes (usually made with glass) which then I sew with a very resistant nylon thread and embroider the shape of the nose with wool or cotton. My bears are completed with hand made clothing and accessories, with quality tissues (silk, linen, cotton) and often with laces and vintage accessories I buy in antiques markets, to confer them a vintage look... like an antique bear. All my teddies come with a descriptive card and an authenticity card. They are collection bears (not suitable for children). They are born in an absolutely non-smoking house.
