Do you want to gift a child a super personalised, completely unique teddy bear?  Or do you want to preserve clothing from a special person or event as a cuddly keepsake?

If you answered yes to either question you've found it. It can be yours with four easy payments of $23.75, with complimentary postage to a New Zealand address of your choice.

Memory Bears are lovingly handcrafted by skilled artisans from treasured clothing.   Like the stories they hold from memories you cherish, each bear is unique. They are also large (31cm tall in their sitting position), with hand embroidered eyes for safety.

Simply order your bear here, then mail us the clothing to be used. This postage is not included in the purchase price. I will email you to provide the address, and confirm the details of any embroidery. 

All clothing is suitable except for hand knit/crochet items, thick items (like jackets), underwear and fur. Bears are fully lined so stretchy and delicate fabrics can be used.

Memory Bears can be made from as little as one item of clothing.  If you don't want coordinating fabric to be added, I recommend sending the following for each bear: 

  • Adult clothing: 2-3 items
  • Childs clothing: 5-6 items
  • Toddler and baby clothing: 8 items
  • Newborn and preemie clothing: 12-15 items
Please see my store page for the current creation time. Thank you so much for your order.
