It has been really important to me that everything we sell is something we believe in. I have a busy lifestyle, three active kids, lots of pets including dogs and horses, businesses to run and I love being on the go myself so everything needed to stand up to family life, and do so while looking amazing. As why should we have to settle for any less?
Red Bear was created from my love (OK obsession) with everything equine and country. It is something I have wanted to create for so long and now I have the opportunity and am bringing my family along for the ride.
All of our clothing has taken longer than expected to come to life as I have sourced several potential suppliers to create my designs and then had to await samples, followed by making sure they stand up to our tests before altering little bits and trying again, this is so important as I only sell what I believe in and we are putting the Red Bear label to all of our exclusive clothing ranges. We have t-shirts (these look so good on), sweatshirts (super comfy to ride in as well as daily wear) and caps all of these are for ladies and children and are almost ready (sorry men we will do a range for you in the future). Plus once lock down is over we can restart talks with the company who is providing the most amazing leggings these are comfy, hardwearing and so flattering, perfect for riding, the gym, or even just the school run. Plus another two super exciting ranges that I cannot reveal yet.
Between us we hand design everything and then outsource to be handmade or hand finished just for you.
We have homeware currently being developed which we have hand drawn and created the patterns for the fabrics. We are currently finding the perfect fabric to print this onto, then we have a team at the ready to create cushion covers, lampshades, bunting, memo boards and more all exclusive to us and again all by hand.
Then there are the bags (perfect for shopping, school runs or throwing your horse gear in for the yard), and our hand drawn art and photography collection, there is also so much more on top of all of this but I am sworn to secrecy and so much love that has gone into every part.
Finally is the jewellery range. I am and always have been passionate about jewellery, my first company was a jewellery designer and retailer, which I since sold and have secretly missed. I love all things sparkly, and to be able to create this along with my other love of horses has been a dream, I have designed two pieces initially and am awaiting all of the goodies to create these, with many more items soon to join the range.
Everything is taking so much longer at the moment due to suppliers and wholesalers all suffering due to the current situation but I promise we will be with you soon and certainly worth the wait.
In the meantime I am loving working from the garden, getting the kids input, having board meetings over bbq’s and gin and seeing everything in the background come together.
I have also just bought myself a sparkly new camera meaning as soon as we are able to share the products with you there will be no waiting for the official shoot, we will be sharing with you that day!! As long as I have learned to use it by then!
