Bear Necessities was started by the husband and wife duo of Husain and Summaiya in late 2014.
Fond of travelling, the couple would often notice the vintage leather bags and luggage people all over the world were using. These bags showed signs of aging and had their own story to tell. They wondered why similar bags were not available in Pakistan 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, Bear Necessities is a story of taking risks, perseverance and staying true to our purpose of providing 'durable leather classics'.
