Named after the closest thing we have to a city in our dale, this bag is the perfect everyday urban companion.
Handcrafted in the UK by our master bag maker Amy.
Available to our newsletter subscribers on the 5th of May and to everyone else on the 6th.
Our hardwearing, weatherproof, GOTS certified organic dry-waxed cotton uses 88% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. It also uses zero toxic chemicals in its production.
Our bags are made to last a lifetime, but we get that not everyone wants to keep something that long.
To avoid your bag ending up in the back of the closet, or worse, the bin, we will take your bag back in exchange for BearMade credit (10% of the bags original value).
We will then recycle the parts from that bag and make it into something new.
We exist to connect people with nature. With every bag purchased, we commit to connecting one person with the outdoors. We are starting this mission with our local town, through out Wildish Club. Find out more here.

Made in Britain
BearMade is an exploration into a different way of doing business.
Local. Impactful. Transparent.
Notes from the designer.
We feel personally responsible for the things we put out into the world and believe business should be a force for good.
To keep our impact low we:
→ Only make and sell locally
→ Will repair your bag for life
→ Will recycle your bag at the end of its life
→ Carbon offset all that we make and do. We plant trees locally (we actually plant them) and in places where they will have a big impact with the help of Ecologi.
Fair & honest Pricing
After all costs this bag leaves us with a margin of £39. That margin goes into:
→ Carbon offsetting
→ Running The Wildish Club
→ Good coffee
→ General running costs
3 trees planted + 10kg CO2e offset
Sturdy, extremely well made and designed The different carrying options - short handles, long handlles/over shoulder and as a back pack are particularly well conceived and useful. Highly recommended!
Brilliant tote bag. Particularly clever design enabling backpack-style carrying if you’ve accidentally done too much shopping. Extremely well made - will probably outlast me and I’m a youthful 39. Fashionable too, so I can get away with pretending I’m a youthful 29. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for and more!
