A wee bit about the artist behind The Old Folly Bears, Amanda Jayne… Let me tell you about my bears, I like to design & create smaller bears around 3-5.5 inches, normally based on traditional/old timers in a whimsical way. I use the finest German mohair to recreate your first childhood teddy bear or a bear that your grandmother had in her childhood. My bears are filled with steel shot or glass sand for added weight.
My bears are created to look vintage in style, some are even threadbare, they are designed to look like they’ve had many hugs & lots of love over the years. Each bear is hand stitched, I then add rustic embellishments like pendants etc
