The Black Bear

Handmade textile bags, accessories and home furnishings, inspired on wilderness and animals


The Black Bear is a Dutch brand of handmade textile bags, accessories and home furnishings, inspired on wilderness and animals. Sofía (founder, owner and designer) works in her studio in Maassluis alongside her hairy, four-legged companion Torkoll. The Black Bear vision is to create practical, long-lasting products and at the same time to build a way to help animals in need. All products are made with the highest quality standards and through eco-friendly practices.

For more than 20 years, Sofía´s main goal has always been to help animals; either by involvement in rescue activities and volunteering in animal hospitals, or by giving donation to care foundaitons. The Black Bear donates 5% from every purchase to The World Animal Protection aiming to bring Sofia´s two passions together: handcrafting and helping animals.


Made for you, help for them
