Julia is an adorable teddy bear, made from wavy light brown mohair with a dark brown tip. She wears a sweet linen jacket which is lined with stripey cotton fabric and finished with ribbon rosebud and pearly button. She wears a matching hair bow adorned with ribbon rosebuds. She has boot-button style eyes and hand-stitched claws, nose and mouth. This teddy bear is part-filled with poly-pellets and shot to give her a gorgeous heavy weight and she has a growler.
Julia is a one-of-a-kind teddy bear and is made exclusively for The Bear Garden.
Bear artist Rita Diesing is based in Berlin and makes her stunning characters under the name Ridibears. She made her very first bear in 1994, however, it was not until 1999 that she gave up her job to become a full-time bear artist. We welcomed Rita's bears to The Bear Garden at the beginning of 2007 and they proved immediately extremely popular.
