LoriBelle Designs specializes in custom fur coat bears and memory fabric bears. If you have a real fur coat, the luxury of which you previously enjoyed or received as a hand-me-down gift from a loved one, you can give it new life as an Heirloom Fur Teddy Bear! Check out the Heirloom Fur Bears page for the options available and how to place your custom bear order. Ready made mink teddy bears (and other real fur bears) are also available in the Recycled Fur Bears section. Or if you have an article of clothing or other fabric which holds special meaning, and wish to turn it into a custom teddy bear, refer to Memory Fabric Bears for photos and more information.
LoriBelle Designs aims to provide a totally unique experience with each bear and hopes that you find one who will capture your heart!
