Tonni Bears

Creating bears is a family affair for the Dutch teddy bear artist, Marjan Balke. Her studio is named for her beloved brother, Tonni, and Marjan makes and designs each and every animal by herself, excepting the help of her husband, Thomas, and her mother. The artist began her career with a doll shop into which a teddy bear appeared one day, she then realized where lay her true passion. She hasn't turned back since. Her bears and friends are limited in the truest sense: she can only make as many as she can find the material to create. For that reason, each of her creations is slightly different from another.
