Baloo, a brown Grizzly Bears joins Bear Pile hoping to find a loving adoptive home. He is a little traditional bear full of vintage appeal and lots of character.

Baloo is sewn from lovely chestnut brown viscose that I have coloured and distressed giving him vintage appeal and character.
He has black glass eyes, an embroidered and waxed nose, and ultra suede hind foot pads.Around his neck Baloo wears a ruff sewn from vintage lace, attached to his back is a small orsetti name tag.

Baloo is five way cotter pin jointed. He has traditional kapok and excelsior filling. I have added quality steel weight to his body.


I sew all my OrsettiBears by hand with love, care and attention to detail, and I hope each will give as much pleasure as I have had in their creation.

OrsettiBears are adventurous and love to travel, with this in mind I always carefully box each little one before sending to their adoptive home.

Thank you for visiting our page ,the bears and I hope you will return.

Hello from Orsettibears and Ann

All little orsetti are hand sewn by myself with love and care, each one having his own individual character. I sew using only quality components and traditional bear making methods. I hand dye many of the fabrics I use ,either mohair,viscose,alpaca or leather. I enjoy shading and colouring my bears and other animals to give them a well loved/aged look!
I love creating the traditional mohair bears ,and dressing some in clothing made from genuine antique fabrics and lace. Equally I find fun in creating little characters in viscose fabric , elephants ,rabbits and any little creature who might inspire!
I create my little bears from my own patterns, but occasionally am inspired by another artists work .I will always credit these artist whos work I too appreciate.

All my little ones are cotter pin jointed and kapok filled.Steel shot is added to their bodies to give a little extra weight . They are not suitable for children under 14 years of age due to small metal parts , unless otherwise stated.

Art and creative pursuits have always been part of my life. Botanical art using coloured pencil is still very much an active pastime and alongside creating my little orsettibears and family I keep fully occupied!

Growing up in the beautiful English countryside there is plenty to stimulate my imagination ....wonderful flora and fauna at every turn!

orsettibear stand between 11cm and 16cm approximately.

All orsettibears are adventurous and happy to travel!

Thank you for viewing , I am always happy to answer any queries.
