Memory Bear: A Gift of Love

A memory bear is truly a gift of love. Each memory bear is made from furs and fabrics that customers send us. These often turn out to be a mother’s old fur coat, a father’s old neckties, a child’s old baby blanket. With such sentimental materials, I craft a keepsake bear for my customers and their loved ones. Pictured below are two customers with their ReMinkie memory bears.

Memory Bear & Holiday Bear

When choosing materials to send us for a memory bear, you can create a holiday bear and memory bear at the same time. For example, the memory bear (pictured below) is a holiday bear too. Our customer sent us clothing in shades of red, white and blue. As a result, the memory bear features USA patriotic colors. It’s perfect for Independence Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, or any day of the year. Not only do you have a keepsake but a holiday gift to give to a loved one.

Memory Bear: Masonic Teddy Bear in Honor of Husband

We recently made a memory bear entirely out of Masonic neckties. We design memory bears from all kinds of fabrics, clothing, uniforms, furs, etc. So when a member of the Masons passed away, one of the man’s friend enlisted our services to make this Masonic bear. This bear has been given as a gift to the late man’s wife — in honor of her beloved husband. See photo of the Mason Bear immediately below.
