what we do
Clothes, like photos, songs and even smells- hold memories from the times when we wore them: baby's coming home outfit, college t-shirts, team jerseys, grandma's favorite robe, even wedding dresses. We all have these tucked away in bins and boxes, but why not DO something with them?
The Patchwork Bear saves these memories and upcycles your clothes into memory bears, quilts and bags to create instant heirlooms. We make the process simple: just place your order online, send us your clothes and we create your keepsake. Your clothes: Recycled. Remade. Remembered.
A little more about us: The Patchwork Bear was founded by Jennifer Cura who combined her skill as an architect with her love of sewing to produce a line of handmade products that are as unique and personal as those who own them. As the company grows, we remain true to the initial concept of offering original, thoughtfully designed products that are handmade with love in the USA.
"Every order is unique and we enjoy getting to know you and your families through the clothes you send us. The most rewarding part for me is seeing how our designs touch your lives by bringing back happy memories."
