I LOVE this bear! He is gorgeous and obviously high quality. Lovely customer service and packaging too. The whole buying experience has been lovely as the shop has a traditional yet friendly and fun feel! I have bought this bear for my newborn son and I hope he will love and keep it forever. Thanks Laura!

About

The home of Pyjama Bears and refurbished vintage teds all in search of their forever home!

At 13 Stitches Laura Love makes 'Pyjama Bears*' by hand using traditional materials and techniques as well as refurbishing vintage bears.
All Pyjama Bears are made using cotter-pin joints, Victorian boot button eyes and have their unique 'Pyjama Bears' label, making them highly collectable. Their bodies are made of tradtional mohair, vintage and upcycled fabrics and modern high quality fur fabric. Every handmade bear is unique unless stated as limited edition, and each comes with a label with personality and interests, often alerting you to a favourite biscuit it would be advisable to stock up on while awaiting Ted's arrival!!!
All refurbished bears come with a detailed description of work received as well as information on their life and personality as revealed to me during treatment.

* (Pyjama Bears get their name from the first one I ever made in a floral fabric that made Ted look like she was wearing Pyjamas! This original now lives with my Grandma).

New for 2016 I am offering my limited edition 'Calender Pyjama Bears'. Each month a new bear will be available exclusively on Etsy, (limited edition of no more than 5). Notifications will be made on my facebook page to let you know when the next Ted is ready for sale. You can get the alerts first by liking & following my facebook page www.facebook.com/bespoke13 or signing up to my newsletter on the website!

Note: All Pyjama Bears are 'collectors bears' and are not considered suitable for under 14's.

Shipping
Orders marked as 4-6 weeks turnaround are for items made especially for you. I tend rarely to need this long, but when i'm very busy I might do. If you have a special date in mind please let me know at time of ordering and I will do my best to accommodate it.

For orders over £100 delivery within the UK is free! So why not order more items!?!!

I do my best to follow the idea of 'reduce, reuse and recycle' in my packaging to keep costs down and reduce the need for landfill. Whenever possible I will up-cycle and reuse packaging and encourage you to reuse the materials again after you receive them.

If you are ordering from outside the UK you may be liable to pay customs duty on collection. The customer is responsible for this so please check it out before purchase if you have any concerns.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase please contact me within 14 days. I will accept returns within 14 days of making contact for a full refund of the purchase price (minus postage costs) providing the item is in the same condition it was on dispatch and is returned in the original packaging. In these circumstances please try very hard not to upset Ted's feelings if item is a bear.

Customised orders unfortunately can not be returned.
Additional policies and FAQs
I also offer bespoke Keepsake Pyjama Bears, made using your own precious fabrics (babygrows, ties and shirts, jumpers, wedding dresses, etc!) Please check out my website to order one directly www.13stitches.co.uk (and sign up to my newsletter for the latest updates snd offers).
