Remake, Reuse, Recycle
It doesn't have to be new to be special
Our mission is to be an ethical, sustainable and environmentally conscious crafter making special bears be upcycled, rehomed and loved. We try to be as environmental as possible by using remnants of Harris Tweed (which is in itself sustainable and supports small businesses), through to the stuffing from recycled cushions, Christmas present ribbons, to shredded paper for our packing♻.
We stock a range of affordable Claire Bears, all of which are by their own right a limited edition bear. They are all one offs, unique. Customers love the sustainable and ethical nature of the business and the repurposing of materials to ensure every Claire Bear is unique and, in its own way, a limited edition Claire Bear🐾 .
We also offer Claire Bears to be made that little bit more personal to make the gift of giving that little bit more meaningful.
This is a great way to support small businesses but also do our bit for the planet🌎.
Genuine Harris Tweed
Harris Tweed cloth - Clo Mor (Gaelic for ‘The Big Cloth’) – is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament and the only fabric produced in commercial quantities by truly traditional methods.
Harris Tweed has a rare character and beauty. Hundreds of distinctive patterns have been developed over centuries, each one unique, but unmistakably Harris Tweed.
Unusually, the wool is dyed before being spun, allowing a multitude of colours to be blended into the yarn, creating a cloth of great depth and complexity.
Gifts for loved ones
All Claire Bears are packaged in their own little travel box, padded with recycled paper and just like Paddington, comes with their own little personalised wooden name tag.
