About

Young explorers looking for new adventures

Ciao!
We are Irene and Tommaso, two Italian siblings passionate about traveling and explore the world.
Our childhood was full of adventure, explorations, being scouts and roaming with our backpacks. We've always been free spirits, hard to keep at home.

We grew up selling comics down the street for few cents and helping out our grandma who is an old fashioned italian tailor.
While being distant for almost two years, in 2014 we thought about a way to combine Tommaso's business management skills and Irene's creativity.
In less than six months Busking Bears was born.

We like to define ourselves "Citizens of the World" since Tommaso lives in London taking hiking trips during the weekends while Irene’s based in Trieste (Italy) but she’s always traveling with her roller-skates in the backpack.
By the way, as a matter of fact we would never forget our own roots. In every photo we take, we always want to picture Busking Bears’ items immersed in the environment where we grew up: our beloved region Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy).
We think that in such a small region it is a miracle to find together the sea, lagoons, hills and the Alps mountains. Naturally, the illustrations Irene draws and then we screen print on our apparel represent the inputs that our land offers.

We firmly believe that people do not have to wait just for the holidays to get some fabulous adventures. The adventure is a mindset that everyone of us can experiment every day, and Busking Bears will always be there to remind that to you.
Nonetheless, we have always had a keen eye on eco-friendly cotton fabrics, suited to any outdoor activity or simply in your daily life.

Busking Bears is a brand for explorers, adventurers and weekenders who care about wearing comfortable clothes as well as looking good in them.
