Memory Bears & Animals

So let's start with what even is a Memory bear? A memory bear is a stuffed teddy bear or soft 'toy' that is crafted using sentimental clothing or fabrics. It is a special keepsake that holds significance and serves as a way to preserve memories whether they be of a babies first year, a special event or to honour the memory of a loved one.

Those sentimental items are carefully repurposed to create a bear/animal allowing the memories and emotions associated with the clothing used to create the keepsake. The purpose of a memory bear is to preserve and honour important moments and memories within ours and families lives, whilst also providing comfort to individuals who have experienced loss or significant life changes. A memory bear serves as a tangible reminder of cherished memories.

We can use all different fabrics for your keepsake, it doesn't have to be just a shirt or baby grows.

The amount of clothing required varies depending on the animal of choice, please refer to the product information for more details for your keepsake of choice.
