Dear customers

Company Closure

"It is with mixed feelings of both joy and sadness that I have decided to wind Bear Brothers down as I head into retirement.

This has been a tough decision to make due to the ongoing popularity of our denim products and the loyal customer following we have built up over the years.

I have enjoyed every minute of my 30 year career in the denim industry, working as a designer for some of the largest jeans companies in the world. By far the most challenging and rewarding role has been the creation of my own brand, and making denim products in small scale production often at, or within a few kilometes, of home.

More recently, having our own wee store in Devonport meant getting to know our customers well, helping them make the best decisions, and contributing to local community spirit.

My aim is to close the company by Christmas 2023 knowing that every piece we have made is out there being worn and enjoyed, and will be for many years to come.

Currently, we have sold out of denim aprons, and have limited stock of denim Workdresses, Dungarees and Bluebell dresses in most sizes, so now is the time to order before sizes start selling out.

If you, or someone you know, would be interested in taking on the Bear Brothers brand, then I'd be happy to hear from you.

My heartfelt thanks for your support of the bears. It means the world to me”
