Did you know polar bears can trace their family tree to Ireland? Genetic evidence shows polar bears are descended from Irish brown bears that lived during the last ice age.

Funnily enough the BiPolarBears followed a similar route. We started our little escapade in June 2016; shipping and printing our garms out of a town called Arklow in the beautiful Éire. As fans of the hot and cold, we got itchy feet and set up shop in LA (manufacturing and packaging crew). We're wholly online based, up in those clouds bro, but we'll be doing most of our work in Ireland.

Stephen Considine, Owner, BPB Wear

From the Baretta putting all the holes in yo sweattta

Owner of BPB W alongside some fairly meaningless abbreviations like a BA in Fine Art, bit of Digital Marketing, GOT (season 1 & 2 only) and blessed with the superpowers of ADHD. These, alongside a motivated friend and an unhealthy obsession with animals and puns, have amalgamated into BiPolar Bear Wear.

Voodoo who do what you don't dare do

From the continent of no bears I migrated north. Sticking round and Gathering some important Irish Skills and charms. This Pan-Afro/Irish ungodly mix had to amount to something worth while. Being a “proud as Putin” co-founder might just be it. From burping babies to burying bodies. Here to help the bears in all areas.

Luke Bulmer

Lover of all things art, fashion and any fusion of the two. Self confessed comic nerd and the kid who ruined every school book but never had his own pen! Painter, sketcher, artist, and... businessman? A collaboration between some mates, a business idea and BiPolar Bear was born!

Without Luke the stock just wouldnt get to you. The man who knows the backend and keeps the madness in check

If you would like to give us a paw, pause no longer- any help would be muchly appreciated
