memory bears for the family

Memory bears for the Whole Family!

Memory bears: We often get orders for 4-20 bears at a time for grieving families. They send a selection of treasured clothing - usually shirts, pyjama pants or bathrobes - and we turn them into beautiful keepsakes for each family member. Custom hand-embroidered details, like names and dates, make them all the more special and unique.
