About me and the bear

ethical dog accessories, built for adventure

Me & the bear is brought to you by me (Natalie) and the bear (Kuma) from our cabin in the South Down's national park.

It was during the first lockdown, whilst shopping for a new collar for Kuma, that I realised I couldn't find anything practical, yet stylish with a low environmental impact. I decided to make him something myself and it was from there that me & the bear was born!

Me & the bear brings you accessories made for adventure and inspired by our natural surroundings, we want you to be able to go out for a day of exploring and get as muddy as you like without worrying about ruining your new things. We also keep the planet at the heart of all that we do, making sure that we always give back more than we take from planet earth.

All of our collars and leads are made using my vintage hand turn Singer sewing machine, Betty, she's a reliable old girl and ensures all of our collars are truly handmade, no electricity needed!

Our pledge to planet earth

Always giving back more than we take

At me & the bear, we keep the planet at the heart of everything we do, making sure we give back more than we take and making eco conscious decisions at every stage, from product planning right through to delivery of your parcels!

We operate as a carbon positive business, more than offsetting our carbon emissions and contributing to funding climate projects around the globe. We also plant a tree with every item purchased.

We aim to use UK suppliers for our materials wherever possible, supporting fellow small and local businesses. All of our packaging is recyclable (But still beautiful!) and we will never use plastic packaging.

Every item we sell is made to order in our cabin studio, so nothing is ever wasted, and all fabric scraps are kept to be repurposed into smaller items!

  • "Nothing but good things to say about this - the seller was so incredibly helpful when I wasn’t sure what size I should be getting, so responsive and kind. When the collar arrived it was gorgeously packaged with care and such incredible quality. I’ve not had a single issue with this collar and it’s by far the best I’ve owned"

  • "On our first walk, my pup obligingly jumped in the river and rolled in fox poo so we were able to test how easy it is to wash, and a bit of soap and water had the collar good as new."
