From the 30th of January to the close of March Silly Bears will be eagerly launching their Springtime Collection 2015 to the theme, The Velvet Collection. In the warmth of their studios during the cool wintry weather, Silly Bears dedicated artistic cohort have been busy at work creating an outstanding collection of bears fitting for this luxurious, opulent theme. 

An annual theme at Silly Bears is the expansion of their artistic base, crossing borders and territories to ensure their team of artists represent the finest mix of talent the industry has to offer. Previous months have seen the addition of some artists as equally masterful as our current team whose creations add extra charm to the four walls of Silly Bears little haven. We hope here at Silly Bears, these new additions will allow for our most spectacular, revered and diverse Springtime Collection 2015; and for this reason invite all patrons to bask in the unveiling!  

The theme with which Silly Bears wishes to usher in its first collection of 2015 is one with which the leading lady and staff are extremely enthused by the luxury of, The Velvet Collection! The rich colours and textures of this theme have prompted and promoted the most sumptuous collection of artistry, creating an air of desirable opulence that no one can resist! The vast palette and plush textures are reflective of the sumptuous quality of velvet and the artist creations are perfectly poised to mirror this luxury. The Velvet Collection is a veritable mixture of collectibles, which have been captured amply to widen the imagination in the Spring Collection 2015. The rich textures of velvet shall be reflected in all aspects of the creations; from inner ears to portly tummies; from headbands to waistcoats; from paw pads to noses. The use of velvet by the selected artistic team can be applied as little or often as they do desire.
 
Patrons should expect the rich lustrous sentiment of velvet to sumptuously reveal itself for this coming Spring Collection 2015 and to be taken effortlessly to a place of relaxed and rewarding indulgence during their viewing pleasure! 
 

Silly Bears Calendar 2015

At this time Silly Bears would like to announce the composition of a wonderful and captivating Calendar for 2015. Silly Bears Calendar 2015 is a depiction of twelve different bears each of whom will take the theme or tell the story of the most prolific event or scene defining the month they are set to represent. As part of this great venture all twelve participating artists have been given full artistic licensing in the formulation of the month with which they have been bestowed producing a highly personalised and perfectly polished final creation, which has since been set amidst a superbly conceived fully coloured hand drawn and hand painted backdrop.
 
The calendar is sized 10 x 10 inch square with a double flip page spread for each month presented on high quality paper in a high gloss finish. The upper page carries the picture scene and lower page the month layout with boxed spaces for each day providing ample writing room for each and every occasion to be penned in with ease. Silly Bears Calendar 2015 is a delight to behold and deserving of pride of place in each and every home it is received. It is a heart warming celebration and memorial of the finest in contemporary teddy bear artistry with the bears of today ready and waiting to be the desired collectable vintages of the future, a reason in itself to covet these pages for the snapshot in time they represent!
