I get asked a lot about which clothes from my collections would suit a newborn baby girl or newborn baby boy, which is when I point out that they’re all gender neutral. The reason I chose to create all my baby clothes gender neutral purely came down to personal preference.
I’ve never liked the classic but obvious style of bright pink with “GIRL” stamped in the middle of the chest for baby girls and baby blue with “BOY” for the boys. I just find it a bit tacky, I much prefer neutral colours and then mum’s have the choice of picking out colours from my animal prints and matching accessories to that colour. This gives you a much greater variety of outfit options to enjoy dressing your little treasure up in!
If you’re keeping the gender of your baby a surprise like we did, it also makes it easier for you and your family to shop for your little one!

I know what it’s like to go shopping for newborn baby clothes. like any doting mum, I’m all about the “squeal effect”—that moment I get out-loud excited about an outfit that would look thee cutest on my little one.

But super adorable baby clothes are just one part of the equation. The bib that goes around my baby’s neck shouldfeel as good as it looks. And that’s not always easy to find. So, out of love for my baby, I started making my own organic baby clothes. Because anything that touches my baby’s skin has to be safe, soft, and pass my mum-level standard. And the same goes for anything I make for your little boy or girl.

As a primary school teacher, I’ve gotten pretty good at listening to parents’ concerns. Turns out, most mums have the same worries I do when it comes to baby products.
They want to make sure anything their little one wears is safe and non-irritating, and plenty comfortable. And if cute baby clothes happen to be good for our planet, all the better.

It’s the reason I believe in quality, handmade goods that last. It’s why the metal poppers on my garments are dyed with environmentally friendly paint. And it’s why I only use GOTS-certified organic cotton, meaning there are never, ever nasty pesticides or chemicals involved.
