About The Maker

Hello! My name is Mayra and I am the owner of The Happy Bear Company. I specialize in making bags and accessories. I design and manufacture all items myself. As the daughter of a professional seamstress, I have been sewing since I was a teenager. I love to sew and create fun and functional accessories. I sell locally in Edmonton, Canada and online.

I focus on using natural and sustainable man-made fibers, recyclable and biodegradable materials as much as possible in my products. I love working with denims, hemp blends, cottons, leather and metal. The goal: to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated at the end of a product's life, and also reduce micro-plastic wear from regular washing. I am also actively tring to incorporate quality repurposed materials and virgin fabric scraps to help reduce textile waste. I believe quality and style can go hand-in-hand with environmental responsibility.

I strive to ship my products plastic-free. Many cities and small towns do not have access to proper plastic recycling facilities. Plastic disposal is becoming more and more challenging around the world. For this reason I try to only use quality recyclable paper and cardboard shipping products.

If you have any questions or comments regarding my products, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

A note to website builders and SEO Marketers: you will most likely get ignored ;D
