Our Story

We – Summaiya and I, husband and wife – started started Bear Necessities in late 2014, in Karachi.
Fond of travelling, we would often notice and discuss the vintage leather bags and luggage that we would notice people all over the world using. These bags showed signs of ageing and had their own unique story to tell. We would wonder why such bags were not available in the Pakistani market which was dominated by a few legacy brands with the same boring, corporate style and, thus, they decided to do something about it.
From no prior experience in leather and using all their savings to get the first batch of leather wallets made, to owning their own karkhana with a small but capable team of karigars and having the BN Family all over the world, Bear Necessities is a story of taking risks, perseverance and staying true to our purpose of providing 'durable leather classics'.
The adventure's just getting started.
