Tobias & the Bear is a playful world of unique, comfy and enviable baby & kidswear, made with love and care for your little ones and the world they live in.
Designed to last and be passed down, each piece is destined to tell a story.
Tobias & the Bear was launched in 2014 when as two first-time mums, friends and fashion industry colleagues, we had a vision that we could do something different for boyswear, creating a collection of baby leggings that really bucked the trend for stiff fabrics and conventional ‘blue V pink’ colourways. The search for our own babies had been limited and expensive, shipping the few pairs we discovered from all over the world. We wanted to try and do it ourselves.
It took ten months to launch our first designs and there wasn’t a blue tractor in sight. Instead, we created a playful world of foxes and bears for our boys, Tobias Fox and Arlo Bear, the namesakes and inspirations behind the brand.
Six years on and Tobias & the Bear is a world where dressing those little ones is as fun for the grown-ups as it is for the kids. We believe that kidswear should be stylish but it should always be fun too. Our prints are ‘where did you get that from’ iconic and our fits are all about comfort, because when you’re dressing kids, comfort really is the key. Our original vision of foxes and bears continues with wild little cubs always at the heart of the main collection.
We believe we have a responsibility to protect our planet so we choose natural fabrics, organic cotton and recycled, recyclable and biodegradable packaging. We work diligently with skilled manufacturers to ensure ethically-produced premium quality pieces to ensure a culture of #passingthemdown and a clothing lifecycle we can be proud of.
