Mister Bears are traditional Edwardian-style characters, dressed using original vintage fabrics and accessories. They are created in Essex by Jennie Sharmann-Cox, who has been making bears since 1990. Jennie has been a window-dresser, a potter, clothes designer and theatrical costumier. She now indulges her passion for old fabrics and haberdashery with her bears. Jennie also has a great interest in antiques, vintage clothing and anything, as she says, "Old and quirky!"
