    Limited production

    We feel responsible for everything we put out into the world. To make sure we keep our impact as low as possible we only make 25 bags a week.


    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.

    This bag is almost plastic-free (we use a recycled polyester thread)


    2 trees planted + 7kg CO2e offset


    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.

    • who cares wins

      We support the Wildish Club. It's a place for outside people that's a bit like cubs but for adults.



    What can I fit in this bag?

    This is a hard question to answer as so many things are different shapes and sizes. However, this bag will easily fit any phone, wallet, keys, a small water bottle, and any other small bits and bobs you can think of.

    Are your bags waterproof?

    Our bags are not totally waterproof, very few are. But they are pretty damn close. We spent an hour throwing them around in a waterfall and water only got in when we forgot to roll the top down....

    Do you really only make 25 bags a week?

    We sure do! 25 bags is our maximum capacity and we have no interest in making more than that. It means we can take great care over every detail in all stages of production.

    Think 25 bags sounds like a lot? It's not. Rolls Royce actually make over 60 cars per week.

    Can I customise this bag?

    Sometimes we can, sometimes we can't. It depends on the product. If you want to know more, send us an email and let us know what product you would like to personalise, along with what sort of personalisation you would like.

    material highlights

    Our bags are made from GOTS certified organic dry-waxed cotton canvas from British Millerain in Lancashire. They have been dyeing and proofing cotton for over 100 years and this material is one of their latest creations. It has a totally dry finish (dry-waxed doesn't always mean totally), is waterproof, PFC free, and is machine washable! However, we don't recommend you wash it often.

    These buckles are made locally to our HQ in North Yorkshire. They are laser cut from British-made stainless steel and have been hand finished in-house by the BearMade team.

    notes from the designer

    The shape of this bag is based on the first sample we ever made. We wanted something that was big enough for the "Bear essentials" (actually where our name comes from), but small enough that you hardly noticed you were wearing it.

    our impact

    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 25 bags a week
    → 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.

    the wildish club

    Like Cubs, but for everyone.

    With every bag we sell we commit to helping one person get outdoors. We do this through The Wildish club.

    Great bag, even better customer service

    The bag is everything I hoped for, amazingly made and great quality. Being a large guy I needed a slightly longer strap - the team quickly hooked me up with a custom made extension. I couldn’t have asked for more. Small independents are the best! Looking forward to ordering another bag soon.

    Another Great bag from Bearmade

    I already have a Ramsgill pouch and because these are very useful to me i thought i would get a Stean as well, ok it's virtually the same thing but the Stean has slightly different carrying options and a YKK Aquaguard zip, what's not to like?
    This company deserves to flourish, the ethos, products and service are all first rate.

    Fantastic Bag

    Very well made bag, big enough to take everything I need and feels as if it will last for ever!

    Just what I was after

    The perfect little bag when you need to nip out without taking the kitchen sink. Easy to wear and feels like it will stand the test of time.

    Ticks all of my boxes!

    I've been using my Stean Crossbody for a month now, it's perfect for everyday use. It feels well made and is the perfect size to fit all my necessities - it even fits my water bottle! (which I could never do with my old Carhartt bum bag) The adjustable strap allows for waist or shoulder carry and the zip is so smooth I can do the bag up with one hand!
