All of our bears are handcrafted by Artist Tania Fish. The bears are all made from 100% Mohair to traditional methods and craft. Tania made her first bear in 2002 and has been hooked ever since. All bears are one-off creations.
Burlington Bears is a hobby based business run by Tania Fish supported by her husband Beckett Fish. The aim of the company is to make collectable bears for adults using the finest quality materials and workmanship as individual one off creations.
The bears are created in a number of styles -Hellraisers are based on motor biking bears, Burlington Bumbles are wacky creations with wings ,Burlington Mutts are dogs, Bunnies are of course rabbits with long floppy ears. Woodland Wonders and Burlington Treasures are miniature bears and are based on fairies and pirates. Burlington Moggies are cats with long tails.
Tania Fish is married with two children. She started designing ceramic pottery whilst traveling in her early twenties very much under the influence of Greek traditional culture. Since settling back in the UK she married digital entrepreneur Beckett Fish and has been lovingly designing bears whilst bringing up two children. Tania and Beckett are the proud owners of 6 cats who keep in check a dog.
Tania and Beckett have spent much time in the Costa Blanca Spain and work between both countries. Tania has also developed a range of jewellery called Montania Designs and a wonderful range of purses.
