The story of Merrythought began in 1930. William Gordon Holmes, owner of a mohair spinning mill in Yorkshire, recognised the opportunity to make luxurious soft toys from this special fleece. He found a beautiful brick foundry building in the heart of Shropshire, and with the help of some skilled local seamstresses, Merrythought was born.
Merrythought's heritage is something they are immensely proud of, and the original workshop in Ironbridge, Shropshire, remains Merrythought’s home to this day; a magical place where each teddy bear is brought to life using the finest materials and traditional craftsmanship that has been handed down four generations of our small family business.
Since only teddy bears of the highest quality are allowed to carry the trusted Merrythought woven label, we ensure the utmost care and attention to detail in everything that we do, right down to the hand embroidered nose and smile that gives each teddy bear its own personality.
A Merrythought is not just a teddy bear, but an exquisite piece of British heritage to cherish and pass on to the next generation.More from Merrythought
