All About Claire’s Bear Bunch
My Journey in Bears
Claire’s Bear Bunch first opened in June of lockdown 2020.
These handmade Harris Tweed Bears are entirely handmade by myself, Claire, Head Bear Keeper, using pieces of genuine Harris Tweed. I handmake these in my little converted attic room on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Scotland.
I use remnants of Harris Tweed, stuffing from cushions and ribbon from Christmas and birthday presents that I saved over the years. Each Bear has five movable joints and safety eyes to give them a bit of character. They stand 40cm high and are 27cm when seated. They also come with the Harris Tweed label and wooden tag, which can be personalised. Each bear is created as a unique, special little bear made with its own special character.
Note: These are not suitable for children’s toys.
