Mr Bear Babygrows
Each baby grow is made from the softest organic cotton and features a hand-drawn printed design taken from my original line drawings. Every design is genuinely unique – making these items extra special! My designs are fun and friendly with parenthood-inspired sentiments. They are printed in the UK using eco-friendly materials, every step of the way I choose sustainable, planet-friendly materials.
From the early drawing stage and print process, to the tagging, writing personalised message cards and gift wrapping - I strive to offer the best quality products with a speedy and friendly service to go with it, not forgetting to mention a BIG dose of love and care thrown in!
The story of Mr Bear...
One evening back in 2014, whilst babysitting in Bow (East London), I was watching a movie on the sofa whilst their little one was fast asleep upstairs. I had brought my sketchbook with me in case I fancied drawing. That night was the night I started my animal collection. I drew ‘Bean’ first, (a much loved guinea pig we had during our childhood) then next I thought, “Let’s draw a bear”...so I did 😊
I sketched each animal in pencil first and then with my 0.4 black pen I added every line & detail. Mr Bear was born 🐻 I decided to print these illustrations as simple postcards & soon after I began selling them at @wearethepavilion where I worked at the time.
With the success of the postcards I began researching other products that I could design & sell. I decided on babygrows 💛 I sourced a lovely organic cotton garment from a UK supplier after trying many samples. I had Mr Bear screen printed on to these by a local print studio...et voila! This first batch was a hit, I sold all 25 on Etsy (& gave some to friends too!) so I decided to print more. That’s how it began...I’ve always followed my gut & have grown my brand slowly over the years.
I like the way Mr Bear stretches as your baby’s tummy grows💛 So cute! He’s been around for sometime & it makes me so happy to imagine all the little ones that have enjoyed their early years styling one of my illustrated onesies 🥰
Thank you to everyone that has purchased one from me🙏
