Turn baby clothes into a memory bear you see every day

We know it's hard to lose a loved one.

With careful attention to detail and quality workmanship, you can trust us to turn your loved one's clothes into a memory bear you'll hold close forever.

We're One of Oprah's Favorite Things!

We're thrilled that our Memory Bear is one of Oprah's Favorite Things! Our goal is to make a keepsake from your clothes that brings back happy memories. 

Don't settle with anyone else to cut up your clothes: we sign for & receive your package in a safe, indoor location (not left outdoors!), design & sew in a professional studio-office space and hand-sew details like nose & eyes. We give each order the care and love your memories deserve.

If Oprah trusts us, you can too!
