Born in Kiel on the Ostee (Baltic Sea) in Germany, Ines Tetling now lives in the beautiful Black Forest in the city of Freiburg with her husband Roland.
The ‘collecting bug’ bit Ines over 30 years ago.
“I started collecting teddy they brought me joy. But then came the temptation to make a little bear myself.”
She soon realized how much work it is to create and develop designs. “It was a big challenge at the beginning,” she said.
Having always enjoyed doing a lot of handwork like knitting, sewing and painting, she had plenty of creative skills to light her way.
With a deep appreciation for hands-on activities such as knitting, sewing, and painting, Ines was gifted a wealth of creative skills.
“At first I sewed big bears, then it was my desire to make something small became, and that passion became ‘very big”.
Today Ines is filled with great joy when she creates a little bear, a friend and companion, who will put a smile on your face and bring you joy.
Her little bears are like a friend who you can take everywhere with you, who carries love within, and always a good conversation starter at any event.
