My story

Remember your loved one with a bespoke handmade memory bear

Throughout some difficult times, I have developed a passion for creating memories through my love for sewing. With a strong flair for crafts and creative design, I create bears and other items incorporating fabric from a loved one's favourite shirt, scarf or any other piece of clothing.

You can keep your memory bear close by as a fond reminder of your loved one every day.
