A Bit About Charlie Bears at Beacon's Glow Collectibles
Did you know that Charlie Bears from the UK are now becoming wildly popular in the US? If you did not know, this 7-year old company produces the extremely popular line of mohair and plush collectible teddy bears affectionately known as Charlie Bears.
Charlotte Morris (aka Charlie) has always had a love for teddy bear collecting and has an extensive background in bear retailing. Incidentally, she used to be the owner of a chain of teddy bear shops in the vicinity of Leeds United Kingdom.
While both Charlie and her husband, William, were forming their new company back in 2005, Charlie was also searching worldwide for a world famous bear designer that would bring her teddy bear ideas to fruition. She was very fortunate to find Isabelle Lee, who agreed to let Charlie Bears become a distributor for her incredible bears.
Charlie Bears are collectable teddies (both plush and mohair) known worldwide for their quality, huggability and reasonable pricing. Their motto is "Bears with Personalities.” Many of this year’s new bears have evolved by using both names and designs suggested by Charlie Bears collectors.
Charlie Bears has two Collections: 1. Charlie Bears Plush (where most are open editions and are made of the softest plush materials) , and 2. Isabelle Collection (Mohair bears that are produced in limited editions and made of the finest Schulte mohair from Germany).
Each teddy bear takes approximately ten weeks from original conception to the pre-production phase. Charlotte herself decides on the theme of each new collection keeping in mind the latest fashion and trends. A bear artist produces a prototype that is then presented to Isabelle Lee at the Charlie Bear Bearhouse and she proceeds with creating a sample. It might take several samples before the prototype bear passes inspection. After inspection, the teddy bear sample is then photographed and production proceeds.
All Isabelle mohair bears have glass eyes and plush Charlie Bears have plastic eyes. Kohiar (a faux mohair) is used in most plush bears and is always of high quality.
Charlie Bears come with a Charlie Bears logo collectible canvas. Those teddies from the Isabelle Collection additionally come with a certificate of authenticity. Charlie Bears – “Bears with Personalities.”
