About Robert Felder
Robert Felder founded Bearbottom Clothing in 2012, launching it in 2014, after visiting Bangladesh as a high school student. Felder saw firsthand the need for quality jobs and basic necessities like clothing within the community. Felder returned home with the mission to make an impact on the people of Bangladesh, and Bearbottom Clothing was born. As one of the largest apparel manufacturers in the world, Felder could provide jobs while donating back to the community through the one-for-one business model. Since then, Bearbottom has expanded not only its clothing line but also its impact on the people and communities they work with.
Felder is an expert in DTC/E-commerce supply chain, product development, fulfillment/warehousing, social entrepreneurship, bootstrapped business growth, international partnerships, and team-building. Bearbottom has been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, and Reader’s Digest.
