Hi, Welcome to the fascinating bearworld of Bruijntje Bear.
My name is Liesbeth de Bruijn and I live in Delft in the Netherlands.
I have been designing and making bears since 1997 when I discovered a book about bear making at a local book store.
Since participating at my first teddy bear show in 2000 I am very proud to win several awards and nominations for my bears and animals.
I love to work with high quality Schulte or Helmbold mohair, with a preference for the so called "Tip Mohairs". For my realistic bears I use the best alpaca in natural colors.
To give my bears and animals hand painted details, and sometimes needle felted details, they get their own unique character.
If dressed, the clothes are also from my own designs and hand knitted from mohair/alpaca silk yarn which complements the mohair.
Most of my bears are one of a kind and made with a lot of love and special attention for details.
I hope they fascinating you too!
Thank you for stopping by!
