...and so much more! Your clothes: recycled, remade, remembered.

Turn baby clothes into a memory bear you see every day

Your baby's clothes deserve better than a cardboard box or storage bin.

Remember every milestone--from her first laugh to the day she crawled across the living room floor--when you turn her infant clothes into a Baby’s First Memory Bear.

Bereavement Bear Memory Bear made from clothes from someone who passed away

Remember loved ones gone, but not forgotten

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

When you want a dignified way to remember the last time you saw her in their favorite dress, the t-shirts that were so him, or the uniform they proudly wore to work every day, turn their clothing into a Bereavement Bear.

With careful attention to detail and quality workmanship, you can trust your loved ones clothing with the Patchwork Bear--a keepsake you’ll cherish forever.

Clear clutter without the waste

You can still keep your clothing without the stress of seeing that overstuffed, cluttered closet. Finally get organized and embrace minimalism without the guilt. From duffle bags to wedding dress quilts, we help you recycle your clothing, keep it out of landfills, and turn it into something meaningful you can actually see and use every day.
