Our Story

Hi my name is Aleisha and I am the person behind The Onesie Bear NZ.

I am based in the wonderful New Zealand.

I turn your most treasured items of clothing into Keepsake Onesie Friends. Each Onesie Friend is a custom design so no two are ever the same. This makes your Onesie Friend very special to you and you alone.


When people ask me HOW I got into my Onesie Bear journey I say it all started with my two wonderful children and being stuck inside the walls of NICU. Both of my children were born as micro prems and spent a year all up between them in hospital. Most of that time  was spent in the High Dependency area of NICU.

Both of my babies wore lots of tiny clothes… 000000 size and they were still swimming in them!!

I wanted to be able to turn them into something meaningful to represent their tough yet precious time spent fighting with complications from being born extremely early. I thought my Onesie Friends would be the perfect way to do just that.


I am very proud to share with you all what my little business has now become. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Here are some of my custom orders I have done so far.
