“DaddyBears was born out of a great need for physical depth within the cold constraints of mankind’s current dystopia.”
With a bio like the above you know I’ll enjoy, as well as it being an amalgamation of overtly shiny, girly fabrics, ‘only clams’ collections and beautifully disfigured, sculptural teddies to cry on…. it’s a win tbh. I love handmade teddies, plushies or anything remotely comforting, I have a few favourite creators that reside in South Korea as well as Japan, so I was so excited to find this London based maker.
With the added theme of sex, DaddyBears plays upon the naughty vs. nice vs. cute vs. sexual preconceptions that many have and seeks to question and challenge them. I mean, what do you do in your bedroom? have sex and cry into a teddy… duh!? If that is the case, then DaddyBears is your kind of handmade plushie creator/sculptor.

2. What are your Inspirations?
Main inspirations are usually taken from bedroom designs, animals and childhood nostalgia/children’s books
3.Lets chat about social media- a hindrance or help?
Definitely a help! I would have no brand or would have to be an etsy seller if i wasn’t able to promote my work through instagram
4. Where would you like your business to be in a few years and do you have any advice?
I would love to be making larger scale/furniture pieces and also maybe more accessories and lots of money hehe. My advice would be- don’t bother starting anything unless you’re 100percent passionate about it and enjoy it.
