Hello! My name is Mayra and I am the owner of The Happy Bear Company, a small home based sewing business located in Edmonton, Canada. I specialize in making bags, baby bags and baby accessories such as blankets, bibs, nursery decor and cloth diapering accessories. I design and manufacture all items myself in my small shop.
I focus on using natural and sustainable man-made fibers, recyclable and biodegradable materials as much as possible in my products. My goal is to reduce the amount of plastic waste that is likely to end up in a landfill at the end of the product's life. Avoiding synthetic oil-based fabrics also reduces microplastic fiber pollution that occurs during regular washing. My materials of choice are organic fabrics, cottons, denims, hemp/bamboo, leather, Tencel and metal.
I sell my products online and locally. I also have an Etsy shop called TheHappyBearCompany. For any inquiries regarding my products, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Also, please check out my photo gallery for examples of my work. Enjoy your visit and thanks for stopping by!
I want my customers to enjoy the products they purchase as well as their online shopping experience. I am the person behind the store front and I want my customers to feel comfortable getting in touch with me should they have any questions or concerns regarding their order.
One of my goals is to reduce the amount of plastic I use during shipping. Many cities and small towns simply do not have recycling facilities. Disposing of single-use plastic can be challenging. I try to use paper envelopes, Kraft paper and re-purposed cardboard boxes to ship my items whenever possible.
