What are memory keepsakes?
Memory keepsakes (bears) are typically made out of cherished clothing to commemorate a special event, mark a milestone in a person’s life or to remember a loved one young or old. Each keepsake from annadoos is a bespoke creation individually hand crafted from cherished clothing or fabrics. They are all one-off and no two keepsakes are ever the same.
