When I was a child my parents gave me a very big German bear as a present for my birthday. I loved that bear very much and always had him sitting on my bed. Later on, we moved from Kyrgyzstan to Argentina, and, unfortunately my bear was too big, so we gave him to my little cousine. Time has gone by and, almost 4 years ago, when I was looking for a fur on Ebay, I suddenly saw a little bear. His face was so cute that I almost stopped breathing. Then I decided to make my own bear. I always loved painting and crafts and when I was 13 years old I went to an art studio and studied painting for 3 years. My mother has always been my inspiration, because she, as an architect, used to paint things and sew with my granny. My first bear was sold at once. Then, my mother decided to give it a try, too. Since then we have never stopped working. So, there are two of us (my mother - Tatiana Milekhina and I- Irina Komoliatova) making bears in OsoMIMosO. We look for new technics and try to improve our patterns by watching real bears. If you really like any bear, but the price is high for you, contact us and we will give you a 45 day layaway if it can help you.
