The History of the Charlie Bear

Arkwright from Isabelle Collection

The Charlie Bears name was established in November 2005, it was founded by husband and wife team Charlotte and William Morris who started off in North Yorkshire before moving down to Cornwall. 

Their Aim:

To continually produce collections of affordable teddies, designed by artists from around the world - and that is exactly what they’ve been doing since they launched their very first collection in February 2006.

The Charlie Bear Trademark:

Each Charlie Bear creation has been beautifully handmade with immense attention to detail. Every bear is designed by William and Charlotte, along with a team of expert designers from across the globe, including Isabelle Lee from Korea, Heather Lyell from New Zealand and Lisa Rosenbaum from Australia. 

Charlie Bear Collections:

Each year the Morris family launch four collections, two in Spring and two in Autumn. The Charlie Bears range includes plush teddies and animals, not forgetting the stunning Isabelle Collection which launches regular limited edition bears made from only the finest mohair and the softest alpaca wool. 

Charlie Bears also have two of their very own houses, one right here in the UK, situated in Cornwall and the other in Victoria, Australia.

Here at Willow Tree Bears we stock an extensive range of Charlie Bears from a number of different collections including the Show Specials, Bearhouse Bears and the Plush Teddy Bears as well as a number of limited edition bears.
