Irish Mohair Bears are “Originals by AM”
When you adopt any Irish Mohair Bear, like Hugh from the Little Rascal Collection, each bear will come with a Certificate of Authenticity stating your name, the bear’s Irish or customised name, its date of birth, the edition number and it will be signed personally by Anke Morgenroth, the owner of Bear Essentials.
Each unique bear is hand-crafted using the finest Mohair. All bears are fully jointed, come in a variety of sizes and some have growl-boxes inserted. What makes them special and collectible is their one off limited edition. Anke’s teddy bear designs feature in different collections and you can find them all under Irish Mohair Bears on our online shop.
Anke’s hand crafted collectible teddy bears have been awarded the Quality Mark of the Crafts Council of Ireland. In 2004 they have been listed in “Index” the top one hundred best products at Showcase RDS in Dublin and in 2005 in the best 50 products at Showcase.
The Bears have been featured on Irish television programmes like “Open House”, “Nationwide” and “Lesser Spotted Ulster” and on “Country Focus” for Sky TV. In 2006 Nationwide recorded customers making a bear with us and featured our showroom and surrounding gardens.
