© 2018 Liesbeth de Bruijn| Bruijntje Bear
My name is Liesbeth de Bruijn and I live in Delft in the Netherlands.
I have been designing and making bears since 1997 .
Since participating at my first teddy bear show in 2000 I am very proud to have won several awards and nominations for my bears and other friends.
I only work with high quality Schulte or Helmbold mohair, with a preference for the so called "Tip Mohairs". For my realistic bears I use the best alpaca in natural colors.
To give my bears and animals handpainted details they each get their own unique character.
If dressed, the clothes are also from my own designs and if hand knitted from mohair/alpaca silk yarn which complements the mohair.
Most of my bears are one of a kind and made with a lot of love and special attention for details.
All of the bears are collectables and therefore 'Not suitable for children under the age of 14'
