Grin & Bear and Locharron of Scotland

With a heritage dating back to 1892, Lochcharron of Scotland is the world's leading manufacturer  of tartan. The tartans are proudly made in Scotland by skilled craftsmen and women who design, dye, warp, weave, mend and tailor Scottish tartans and textiles.

Over the festive period, we were contacted by Lochcarron of Scotland we wanted to send us some fabric to create a unique bear which would help people imagine their tartans in a new, more modern light outside of its traditional use. 

I opted for a patchwork bear look featuring around 20 small samples of tartan. I am glad to say it turned out amazingly well as you can see from the image below.
