Meet the Team
Based in Deep River, Ontario, Bug & Bean is a Canadian luxury bedding and decor line for children.
Founded by Erin Thomson—a military wife, preschool teacher, and mom to two little girls.
Erin bought a sewing machine and taught herself to sew after having her second daughter. Shortly after, she started handcrafting personalized keepsakes for friends and family. Combining her new hobby with her pre-existing love for all things handmade—Bug & Bean was born.
If you're searching for a personalized one of a kind gift for your little one—we are the one-stop-shop to find it.
From handmade bedding, luxe chenille minky blankets, to personalized decor and apparel, give the perfect handcrafted gift they’ll never forget.
To accommodate the growth of Bug & Bean, we have expanded our production line around the globe to serve our clients better.
We ship worldwide!
