our story


Kidd & Bear was founded by Andy in 2016 when he quit corporate life to retrain as a cabinet maker and focus on his passion for woodwork and design. Soon after, Andy and wife Lucy were thrilled to be expecting their first child, a boy. After failing to find anything special for the nursery from the usual places Andy decided to design and hand craft their son's first sleeping quarters. That experience led Andy to create the Kidd & Bear Bespoke collection, offering the very finest in bespoke British design and craftsmanship made in the Kidd & Bear studio in Bath.

Since then, Kidd & Bear's range of products has grown to include unique playthings, limited edition artworks and the finest quality clothing for Little Kidd's and Big Kidd's alike.
