Our Story

Custom-made durable clothing for playful children 


Welcome to Adam and The Bear, a custom-made durable clothing line for playful children. Our active line is designed for the timeless, layered look inspired by the Northwest. 

All fabric, which is the cornerstone of quality clothing, is sourced from superior, responsible vendors with sustainability in mind. 

Each garment is handmade in Bellevue, Washington with the utmost attention to detail using reinforcement techniques to extend the life of the clothing.

Adam and The Bear was born after years of replacing poor quality, mass-produced pieces due to wear and tear. In most cases, a child’s wardrobe should last at least a year, preferably more, and still be in good enough condition to be handed down several times. 


Most items can be custom-made, at no additional charge, to fit your child’s measurements. Please contact us with any questions or comments.

Thank you for considering Adam and The Bear for your active child.
