BowerBird Bears

BowerBird Bears have been lovingly designed to bring a smile to that special person in your life or maybe just make you happy.

Gill has been making artist teddy bears since November 2011; during this time she has been accepted into The Professional Crafters Guild and The Guild of Master Bear Crafters. An award-winning bear maker, she is featured in the UK Teddy Bear Guide and has recently had prime coverage in the Teddy Bear Times.

Bowerbird Bears are made from traditional as well as unusual fabrics, drawing on Gill’s background in Interior Design and growing passion for textiles of all kinds. Recently she has been dyeing natural mohair to match fabrics which she has used for paw pads, creating unique bears that will enhance any teddy bear collection or room décor. Commissions are welcome, repairs by consultation.

Each of our bears is individually named and comes with a birth certificate.
