Clemens Bears is a brand stuffed full of beautifully handmade bears dating all the way back to 1948. Hans Clemens, a German man from Kirchardt, began his business shortly after the Second World War. He had recently lost everything, his home and manufacturing business, and was looking for a new way to make an income.
Teddy Bears weren’t readily available during World War II, so Hans took it upon himself to try and bring teddies back, using old army blankets to do so! Every bear was lovingly and individually handmade, and still is to this day! Since the 40s Clemens has grown into the successful brand it is today, producing original bears composed of intricate parts to the highest possible quality. The bear’s appearances may have changed over the years, but the quality and care taken when making these lovable creatures has not!
Clemens Bears have made the long journey from their hometown of Germany to join us right here on Toy Street, and today we’re looking at our five favourite bears!
One of only 223 worldwide, Teddy Konstantin is made from the finest beige mohair and wool blend. He’s jointed in five places, so he can move his arms and legs, bringing him to life! Konstantin has an endearing face with a cute hand-stitched nose and mouth. He proudly wears a beautiful polka dot bow around his neck alongside the Clemens Bears trademark tag.
Teddy Mats has a gorgeous glossy coat with longer arms and shorter legs, making him perfect to sit up! He’s incredibly soft and silky which makes him perfect for smaller hands and cosy cuddles. He has dark brown fur and light caramel coloured paw pads. He would be an ideal gift for children and adults alike, or even for yourself!
Honey Bear is a perfect teddy for children and adults of all ages. His soft fur makes him one of Clemens most cuddly bears, and his adorable face and personality makes him one of the most popular!
Teddy Simon is one of Clemens’ more luxurious bears, but still has an affordable price tag. He has a beautiful dark gold coloured coat with plush felt paws of a lighter colour. His innocent face will draw you in, and his soft beanie like belly will make him irresistible! He wears a necklace with a key on it, the key to his heart!
Lindsay is a lovely young bear with full a fully jointed head, arms and legs which means he’s fully movable and can really come to life. This bear is 40cm tall, has fine and soft gold plush hair and wears a cosy patterned scarf to keep him warm. His adorable face has a cute expression and he’s the perfect classic bear to add to your collection!
