The Cami Bear Story

Meet the Creator of Cami Bears

Cami Bear was founded by Camille Borgas, who in 2013 created her first memorial bear following the passing of her mother. Over time her business has grown, as people recognise the healing comfort of having a teddy bear to hug and come to Camille in their time of need.

With her lovingly hand-crafted bears, and her kind and caring manner, Camille has been able help and support people from all walks of life who are going through a heart-breaking loss.  She continues this work in the hope that she can make it just a little bit easier and more comforting for them as they go on their own healing journey.

When you purchase a Cami Bear, you can be assured it has been made with lots of love, compassion and understanding.

The Cami Bear Story

The idea for the Cami Bear came about after the loss of Camille’s beautiful mum. She battled ovarian cancer for 2 ½ years, but sadly passed away in May 2013. Having her live with the family throughout this time was a precious gift, as it brought them all closer and allowed many wonderful moments together. Nanny cuddles, laughs, tears through the tough times and long chats over coffee were memories they will all have forever.

After she had passed away Camille’s youngest daughter Tilly began collecting trinkets from Nanny’s room, as a way of keeping her close and coping with the loss. As she was only young, and loved all cuddly soft toys, Camille had the idea to make her a bear to keep the treasured keepsakes safe. This was the first Cami Bear, and Tilly still loves it as much today as she did back then, sleeping with her ‘Nanny Bear’ every night.

Seeing how much comfort it brought to Tilly, and still does to this day, Camille began to make these bears for others, to help them through their own grieving and healing journey.

Some Love From Our Recipients

Camille is the most caring person and certainly works magic on her Cami Bears. When I rang her she had "all the time in the world" to speak to me and helped me through a difficult time. After we, my daughter & I, had chosen the bear for my wife's ashes to be kept in, Camille went out of her way to search out something special that we asked if she could find and embroider onto "our" bear's" feet, this was not a problem at all and the finished Bear was exactly what we and all the rest of family wanted. My wife would/will love this Bear. The love and attention given in making the Bear and to fulfil our wishes is true dedication at a very sensitive time in a family's life. Thank You so much for all you have done to make this sad time a little better.

The Cami Bear was purchased to hold the ashes of my dearly beloved Doberman girl who passed very suddenly and unexpectedly and this was a very emotional process. I would highly recommend this product and Camille for her kindness and caring attitude in my time of pain and Camille's attention to detail and the quality of the product were second to none. I am now able to cuddle my girl again and am grateful for all you have done for me. Thank you, Pip

We are very happy with our Cami bear, which will store our cats ashes. Beautifully packaged & finished, and a great quality teddy bear. Our only feedback is that we hoped the customised belly patch would be a bit softer for cuddling but it is quite thick & hard. Maybe a removable patch or a softer fabric would be an idea? We look forward to having our beautiful bear for many years to come. Thankyou Camille for this unique commemoration of our beloved fur baby ❤️🐾

Camille is kind, caring, thoughtful, and dedicated. She ensured every detail was correct for our special bear. Being able to “hug” my son now is so helpful to healing our hearts. Many thanks, Camille for a quality product as well. Our bear is beautiful. You are a wonderful person. I am so grateful for your help and support at a difficult time in our life. God bless you!!

I can not begin to express my experience with Cami Bear and it's founder Camille. After the loss of my mom I was devastated and wanted something to hold her ashes in that I could hold to keep her close. I found Cami bear and knew this was it. I contacted Camille and she immediately connected with me expressing her heartfelt condolences. I felt her empathy and kindness throughout all our correspondences. My Cami Bunny arrived today and she is gorgeous. The quality is outstanding and I can honestly feel the love that was put into making it. I know that healing takes time. I also know that this bunny is going to help. Thank you Camille.
