A couple of weeks ago I visited our manufacturers in Shropshire to see our first order of 150 teddy bears being made. I was able to meet the whole team of teddy bear makers that are involved in making our Wapikka bears.
It was super interesting and I saw all of the elements involved in making each bear from cutting the mohair wool into patterns to the sewing of the nose.
Each teddy bear is handmade from scratch with expert precision. They truly are made by some of the finest teddy bear makers in the world. One of the ladies I met has been working there hand making teddy bears for over 20 years!
