Meet the Canopy Market Traders

A Q&A with Charlotte Jansingh, founder of bob+BEAR - design-led products for the modern dog

Posted: Thursday 24th November 2016

Bob+Bear, Canopy Market, King's CrossWho are bob+BEAR?

At bob+BEAR we offer a curated selection of high quality dog products, we work with independent designers who create contemporary collections and products with a focus on design & functionality.

Inspired by our rescue dogs Dede & Bobby, we don’t think you should have to compromise on design or quality when shopping for your dogs.

How did you start your market stall?

We are mainly an online retailer, but we really wanted to meet our customers face to face so we started looking into cool markets to get involved with in the South-East!

Any interesting facts about what you sell – what’s your ‘USP’?

Bob+BEAR is for pet owners who favour the forever-in-style simplicity of monochrome, we bring together a well blended mix of design-led and contemporary products, devoted to timeless neutrals, geometric prints and the occasional pop of bold accent colours.

With a strong focus on quality, design and functionality, bob+BEAR’s edit for dogs and their humans takes a contemporary approach to styling your dog’s look, life and your home. While some items are purposely designed to match, the entire collection is designed to effortlessly work together thanks to the brand’s continuity in colour and pattern.

Sourcing pet items from independent, artisan designers from the UK and afar, bob+BEAR present a collection to meet a dog’s needs, which are made by people who share the brand’s love for dogs and design.

What is most rewarding about trading?

We love seeing the reaction people have when they see our products for the first time and how excited they get about spoiling their pups, but we particularly love meeting all the amazing dogs that visit our stall with their humans…

Who is your ‘typical’ customer?

Our typical customers are creative professionals, who love to spoil their dogs – and have a love of design and fashion.
