We will then recycle the parts from that bag and make it into something new.

Made in Britain

BearMade is an exploration into a different way of doing business.

Local. Impactful. Transparent.

Notes from the designer.

Our 50mm cotton webbing straps are very comfy on their own, but for those who are carrying particular heavy things for a long period of time, we designed these padded strap add-ons to keep them comfy all day long.

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.

The recycled wool felt in this padding comes from West Yorkshire. Being wool it's naturally breathable and very comfortable.

Made by Amy.

We insist on working with great people who share our values, and our lead bag maker Amy is one of a kind.

With 20+ years of experience, she makes all our bags, with the help of a small team, from her studio in the Suffolk countryside.

Yet another outstanding BearMade product!

These shoulder strap pads make my Gouthwaite backpack extremely comfy, especially for carrying heavier items or on longer trips. They're also perfect if you are finding the positioning of the straps to be a little too wide on your back. I highly recommend them as an add-on!

Love the straps!

Didnt think you could improve on the perfect bag but these straps do just that! Such improved comfort, and once they're in-place they don't budge, very reliable and rugged. I currently use them for walking a few miles back and forth to work but cant wait to try them for a holiday, i have no doubt that they will perform amazingly

First impressions

Initial impression is of a very well made article.
Not had much use yet so hopefully it will be as robust as it looks.
