    Just received my parcel, three bears and a cushion made from my husbands pyjamas. After the tears, which flowed and flowed, all I could do was smile. To say I’m delighted with every piece is an understatement. I’m thrilled and just had to write to say a very big thank you.
    Sending all the team there my love and best wishes for a very happy Christmas

    I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful service , I received my three bears this morning and they are everything I wanted them to be . On opening them , my memories of my Dad wearing his suit and tie at my wedding and his dress down days of joggers and striped shirts came flooding back . I have shed a tear or two but these bears that you make are just wonderful and I am sure will bring great comfort to my Mum , son and I in the days and years to come

    I just wanted to let you know that our 14 bears arrived today and to say i am delighted would be an understatement! Wow! They are absolutely incredible. I love every single one of them. So much so, i contemplated keeping them all to myself! I didn’t though and instead have been on the rounds this evening delivering them to my family and everyone is so pleased with how they’ve turned out. They have exceeded our expectations. Our beloved Mum/Nan will always be in our hearts regardless but to have such a special keepsake like this is just wonderful. Thanks to Mark for all of the help with our large order! Nothing was too much trouble and you were very helpful. You clearly have a very talented team of people and myself and my family will be forever grateful that you’ve made us these wonderful bears. I will be sure to recommend you, in fact i may have already drummed up some business for you as a few people have asked for your details! Thanks again.

    Just to say my two bears one rag doll and one rabbit are absolutely fabulous. All four made with the same clothing of my dear departed sister but each one so individual. I was thrilled with mine but when I ordered the rest for my sisters grandchildren, I was blown away and everyone loves them. Much more professional than ones I have seen since and made with such love and care a d nothing was a problem. Tha k you so much to the team.

    Just wanted to say a big Thank-You to you all for the efficient way you handled my order. I wanted both my mum and dad’s clothes to be used together to make 2 memory cushions.1 for me and 1 for my brother who has a special birthday coming up ( 50 ). Also 1 lion and 2 memory bears.
    When I sent mum and dad’s clothes I was apprehensive.
    Tiller & Co received the clothes on the Tuesday on the following Monday morning my order was delivered. I had requested they send 1 memory cushion and lion to my brothers address which was done and arrived the same day as mine.
    I cannot put in words what the cushion means to me and as for the bears they were bigger than expected and the quality and workmanship gone into them was amazing as was the cushion.
    Cannot wait for my brother’s birthday to come as the cushion is a gift. Then my niece can have her lion and my son’s can have their bears. There will be tears but they will be happy tears and treasured memories forever.
    Thank-You once again

    Hi I just want to say the biggest thank you ever. My 3 bears arrived to day, they came very quickly, presentation was excellent, when I lifted the lid and pulled back the tissue paper, I was speechless, it brought a tear to mine and my husbands eyes, they exceeded our expectations.
    I looked for hours for a nice looking bear on the internet, I certainly choose the right company.
    thank you Mark who was a good listener on the phone and the Tiller & Co team for producing Three lovely bears, the craftsmanship was outstanding, I liked them so much I am going to order another one.
    I would definitely recommend Tiller & Co to all my friends and family.

    Its difficult to trust an unknown company with items of sentimental value, particularly at such a difficult time. However, from the first phone cal,l to the arrival of my pair of bears, I need not have worried, I felt everything was given the greatest respect and the end result was 2 beautifully made bears. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much Tiller and co.

The bears are gorgeous, the quality is second to none and Tiller & Co were the most excellent company to deal with. I will have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
