Redwood is a rather serious character made from rich, burgundy wine coloured mohair. As with all of Gail's bears, he is filled with a mixture of steel shot and polyester to give him a lovely heavy weight. He also has boot-button style eyes, a lightly varnished nose and wooden ear button.
Redwood is limited to just 3 pieces and this bear is number 1 of the edition.
Gail started designing and making bears in 1995 for her son Connor and friends' children. She was then asked to make one for a charity auction in aid of a children's hospice in Edinburgh. Enquiries from shops soon followed and Bisson Bears was born. Gail's love of traditional and old bears comes out in her designs, which tend to be one-of-a-kind bears or very small editions.
