Winter Collections 2014!

From now until the end of November Silly Bears will be launching their eagerly awaited Winter Collections 2014. Their exceptionally talented and enthusiastic team of artists have been working steadily throughout the summer months to create a collection which emulates the childhood of days gone past. This winter season Silly Bears would like to give the gift of reminiscence by witnessing under their roof the splendour of their chosen theme, Edwardian Bedtime.
 
Silly Bears are heavily vested in the promotion of the loving family unit and believe that this is a picture best displayed in the period at the turn of the 19th century. The regaling of the traditional childhood and staunch family values is particularly apt at this time of year, and to further this the team at Silly Bears felt a gentle and homely theme could never go a miss in the run up to Christmas! It is for all these reasons that Silly Bears would like to revisit this classic theme at the time of year that is more traditional, homely and more heart-warming than any other.
 
The Edwardian Bedtime will be grounded by traditional values, designs and distinction, and will be seen in the collective showcase of classically charming and wonderfully warming teddy bears. The composition of vintage and traditional teddy bears comes in part from their lack of complexity and is captured in their solemn sweetness. The enduring popularity of vintage bears is a testament to their captivating charm. The traditional features are those which modern day artists shall covet and emulate for many years to come and will ensure that the collectable market is blessed with these vintage stylised teddy bears for all to own and admire for many more years to come.
 
The collection will bring forth the natural muted tones of vintage makers of yesteryear and shall see the ample use of vintage materials and embellishments where possible. These bears will be touched with a vintage wand, and in their presence we shall be magically transported back to the bedrooms of Edwardian splendour. These bears are a fitting modern artistic tribute to days gone past and keep alive the heritage and lasting legacy of all bears in circulation today. Silly Bears cannot wait to share this coming Winter Collections with all patrons and they do hope to enrich all souls with joy at this magical time of year!
