All of these cool, beautiful and one-of-a-kind goodies are from unique boutiques from a mix of different cultures. These handmade goodies are all ethically sourced and each item plays a part in helping to serve a larger purpose by helping to fund several humanitarian initiatves: provide women in Malawi, Africa and Guatemala with business opportunities and honorable incomes; help care for orphans in Makindu, Kenya; help feed malnourished children and provide literacy classes for women. Fashion with human impact is important in todays world of mass commercialism, and who doesn’t love goodies that are uniquely artisan made, respect fair trade and are globally philanthropic. Being able to make an impact and look cute as a result is pretty amazing and this round-up of goodies for your babiekins is just that!
Vivid prints, mixing up patterns, accessories and bold colours; I enjoy seeing my little ones in all of the above and we have great fun with it.
And then… in total contrast… I’ll find pieces that are stripped back with unapologetic simplicity. Where the fabric speaks for itself and the smallest details sing. And they look. Beautiful.
This handmade linen Elks dress evokes childhood memories of mine. Totally captivated by Enid Blyton’s ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’, I would play in these woods on the edge of our village on long Sunday afternoons; Imagining being in the thick of ‘The Famous Five’ adventures.
It’s amazing how with no other distractions the smallest of details sing; whether that be the silhouette, the detail in a collar, or how the material feels between your finger tips.
Do your Babiekin’s have an outfit that takes you back to your childhood imagination?
