My name is Irina Zlobin, and I am a teddy bear maker. In my early childhood, artistic endeavors were a part of me and I’ve always had a pleasure of creating. I love painting, drawing, sewing, sculpting and all I can do with my own hands. In 2012 I found that creating Teddy bears brings me joy that’s why I wanted my bears to be appreciated as art, starting from December 2013 I began making my own original pattern designs, choosing the finest materials and creating each bear with attention even to the smallest details. This kind of art evokes the warmth & delight of childhood; it’s an art that you can hold, touch and experience by just looking at it.
I sincerely hope that my bears will bring the same joy as they bring to me, because they’re made with love and care.
