Bear Design bags, clutches, wallets, credit card holders, backpacks and suitcases are produced sustainably according to the principles of Fair Trade, with respect for people and the environment.

Stylish, trendy, functional, durable bags and accessories for men and women.


Bear Design bags and accessories are handmade from strong, high quality leather from India. Bear Design bags last for years because of the use of robust leather and a perfect finish. Because of the way the leather is processed, no two bags are the same. The more you use your Bear Design bag, the more worn and distinctive it becomes. Stylish Bear Design bags are suitable for both business and casual use.

For men and women of all ages. Bear Design bags represent contemporary design. Distinctive styling produces a modern yet timeless look that brings out the best in the distinctive material of the bags. A great deal of care goes into selection of the leather and the choice of colour. Even the inside is beautiful, stylish and highly functional. This typifies the image of Bear Design: pure, natural and stylish. Since 1993, Bear Design has been a leading brand in the Netherlands, as well as internationally, for example in Germany.

Natural and Stylish


Functionality and ease of use are central to the design of all the styles, without compromising on the look of the bags. The collection includes sturdy bags with large compartments, strong zippers and adjustable and detachable shoulder straps, amongst others. In addition, Bear Design creates bags especially for carrying laptops or tablets safely. Thus, you can enjoy the practical features and natural look of Bear Design bags at work too. In addition, the brand excels in rucksacks. These are attractive, natural and very practical to use. How about a shoulder strap with a zipper, so that you can carry the rucksack over one, as well as both shoulders? All bags are made of strong, high quality leather. The bags last for years thanks to this robust leather and the perfect finish.

Solid and Functional


Because all bags are made of robust, high quality leather and are perfectly finished, they last for years. The leather used to make Bear Design bags comes from India. There, the cattle live outdoors the whole year round and are virtually wild. This means the hides of the cows are often very worn and this is reflected in the bags. Every Bear Design bag is unique.

The leather used by Bear Design is tanned largely organically. After the tanning process, the leather is treated with wax and oil. This produces the distinctive colours and protects the leather against water. The leather has a beautifully supple quality. To make your bag last even longer, we recommend treating it after a period of time with beeswax or dubbin to nourish the structure of the leather. When you treat leather with beeswax, it can darken in colour, so if you do not want this, use dubbin instead. Care of the bag contributes to the durability of Bear Design bags.

Choose Quality


Bear Design items are durable products that are also sustainably produced. Bear Design actively opts for production methods that respect people and planet. That means the workers receive fair living wages and the leather is processed in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Bear Design has been doing business with the same factories in India for over 25 years. This builds good business relationships and ensures high quality products. Most employees have been working there for a very long time.
