Jean Van Meeuwe Slater Bears – Teddy Bear, History, Information

Jean Van Meeuwe Slater is a teddy bear artist from Keerbergen, Belgium and has been making bears since the 1970’s under the name Just For You. She makes one bear at a time, making about two a day, sometimes spending as much as two hours on the nose.

Typical Jean Van Meeuwe Slater bears are undressed, made of mohair for the bodies, Ultrasuede for the paws and pads, glass eyes and stitched noses. “Roderick,” and award winning “Fawzy,” are two of her more popular bears.
