Inge Bears are created by Ingrid Els in South Africa. Inspired by her childhood love of miniature toys and folk art, Ingrid began making bears as a hobby for a local craft market. In 1999, Ingrid began to make miniature bears full time and started to gain international recognition after attending shows in Germany and London in 2001.
