"A family business with family values in the pursuit of excellence."
This has been Canterbury Bears motto from when the business was founded in 1979.
The company excels in the fine creation of collectable teddy bears, gollies and other creatures.
The workshops are located in the English village of Littlebourne in Kent. In 1987 Canterbury Bears was granted the privilege to use the coats of arms of the City of Canterbury as its logo. This ancient coat of arms is registered by the Garter King of Arms and is circa 11th Century.
As bear specialists Canterbury has created one of the largest bear collections in the bear world. We specialise in corporate commissions as well as our range of catalogued bears.
Our integrity is our customers guarantee. It is true to say that a company can be judged by the company it keeps. Some of our corporate clients, past and present, attest to this.
Canterbury Bears is an energy conscious and environmentally aware company, committed to conservation.
