Susanne has been making her wonderful vintage style teddies since 2000. Her passion for teddy bears came about a few years earlier, in 1997, when she came across a rather unloved and damaged vintage teddy whilst at a flea market. Her collection started here and steadily grew, acquiring new bears as well as old. Susanne made her first teddy, completely hand-sewn, in 2000. Her love for all things "old" influences her style, especially in the use of vintage fabrics, lace and trims that adorn the clothing.
