Hello! I'm Michelle Doig the bear artist behind Padfield bears and welcome to my page. Since discovering this wonderful vocation my days are filled with fluff and happy little faces. It is a total pleasure to create and I am constantly amazed how each bear develops their own personality regardless of what I may have to say in the matter. There is a special magic that comes along with a bear if you allow yourself to enjoy it. If I'm honest I become attached to every bear I make and would love to keep them all but bears need to find their own way in the world and without you none of this would be possible. I'm over the moon when some one chooses one of the Padfield gang and it makes my heart sing. Thank you so much and please take care of them in their new adventures x
Please note (boring but necessary)
The traditional way I construct my bears and friends deems them unsuitable for children under the age of 14. Bears sold to countries outside the UK may be subjected to import taxes or duties. As I am trading as Padfield bears I can not send parcels marked as ‘gifts’ or under value to avoid payment of such. You as the buyer are responsible to pay these to your government on top of any monies you have paid to me. Parcels may be opened by customs at any point of their journey to you, so I have to pack your bear with this in mind.
