Who We Are

We specialise in making beautiful clothes for babies and children. Elegant, timeless and capturing a childhood innocence. Clothes made to last, worn as favourites and then passed on to the next child. Everything is made in our studio/workshop, to order, here in Cornwall, high above St Ives, amongst the dramatic rugged beauty of the hills and north Atlantic coastline. Each season we select new fabrics, to add to our existing collections, sketch fresh designs and create inspirational outfits for siblings to wear, not only for important occasions but just to feel special, happy and free. Unique clothes, found no-where else and continuing a British heritage that is loved by many all over the world.

Our Philosophy

Dressing children as children. Clothes to encourage confidence, comfort and compliments. Natural fabrics, classic designs and made to perfection. Sustainability, traceability and accountability. Little waste, recyclable packaging and the smallest possible carbon footprint.

Kind Words

The baby suit was absolutely perfect! Patricia was extremely helpful with a couple of changes I asked and it arrived on time, in a nice package, perfectly ironed, spotless. I highly recommend this. Thank you so much Patricia!

This is just the best coat ever. It's had so many compliments and have ordered one for a friend too who was raving about it. If you are tempted, buy it.

What We Offer

Exclusive Designs

We design all the clothes with an emphasis on style, comfort and exclusivity. Everything is made to our own specifications and sizing, with consistency throughout and in co-ordinating colours. Always mindful of dressing little ones; avoiding things they hate (like pulling over the head!), things all little girls love (twirly skirts?), everything is lined and has adjustable elastic and deep hems for growth.

Made to Order

Everything is made to order. It has all been carefully curated before going on the website; samples and patterns made, fabrics in stock, colour-matched trims and re-cyclable packaging ready for its journey to wherever you live. All we ask is that you are patient for 2-3 weeks to give us time to make your order with love and care, before shipping in the safest and quickest way by Royal Mail or FedEx/UPS courier.

The Best Fabrics

Wherever possible fabrics are British. Natural cottons, wools and linen. Sometimes from Europe, especially Swiss heirloom qualities, piques and Dotted Swiss. I love fabrics with history and source from mills that are sometimes hundreds of years old yet are at the forefront of technology and design. It is only by using the finest fabrics that we can achieve these beautiful pieces that will withstand the test of time.
