Hans Clemens arrived in Germany immediately after the second World War and like many had lost everything including his shoe manufacturing business. He opened a small retail store and was constantly asked for Teddy Bears and so began producing them from old army blankets. Soon demand for his special hand crafted bears increased and as his business flourished the range extended to plush animals too although the Teddy Bears were still the most favourite darlings of all. Clemens today is a well known soft toy factory in Germany, who's teddy bears have won the hearts of many collectors and children around the Globe. We are so exciting to be stockists of these stunning collectable Bears.
