&dear was found by Cheeyee and Aimee, who are cousin to each other, with the passion of creating and making things, they joined together and started the group. The name “&dear” was came from a english term “endear”, which means let something / someone be loved.
The idea behind &dear is to enhance public awareness on distinctive animals. They created handicrafts and illustrations with their playful hearts along with their greatest love for animals, and hoping to share some of their joy and animal addictions with everyone. Established in 2011, they have participated in 5-6 local flea markets, which allow them to share their thoughts and interact with the public.
