Having met in 2007 as creative and editorial heads of a newly launched online fashion store Leanne and Ruth were colleagues first, friends soon after and then some time after that, mums to their little dudes, Tobias and Arlo (the Bear in the tale). It was a post maternity leave water cooler conversation (yes, they really do happen) that triggered the idea for Tobias & the Bear - great printed leggings, with unique designs created by us, for boys, or tomboys (or for any mum who wanted a break from the sea of pink out there). Their hunt for just this had failed time and again and their babies were at risk of having to wear styles we felt were suited for men more than boys.
Tobias & the Bear is not about seasons. Everything is 100% made in the UK – that’s really important to Tobias & the Bear.
