amandabelarmino's Shop Announcement

Belarmino Bears is a collection of unique, one of a kind, hand knitted teddy bears made in Champaign, Illinois by Amanda Belarmino. Amanda was taught to knit by her grandmother as a child but lost the habit as she grew older. Then, after relocating to the Midwest while her husband is pursuing his Phd., Amanda re-taught herself how to knit.

These teddy bears display a whimsy and charm often missing from mass created teddy bears. Each bear tells a story and is a unique individual, just like each one of us. As each one is handmade, no two bears are alike.
