3 Small Independent Kids Brands

It's hard to shop small, to find us, to know what to choose and invest in. I'm here to make it a little bit easier.

First up three brands I know well. I know the women (mamas) running them and I've bought from them for my girls and for pressies.

1. Monty & Co

@montyandco - Leigh is the most forward thinking designer I know. She has been walking the walk of sustainability for a long time, her pre-loved collection, mending service and craftsmanship mean our stuff still looks like new.

2. Claude & Co

@claude_and_co - Abi and I have been virtual work mates since pre-xmas. She's from the same buying background as me and I love the ethos behind her brand and it's humorous take.

3. Dinki Human

@dinki_human - Ester is such a creative designer - I'm a sucker for a print and hers always pack a punch plus the materials she uses are just gorgeous for babas. The clothes even come in a little cloth bag which I use all the time for keeping tiny socks in.

Hope you like... Is there anything else you'd like me to find suggestions for? sandals / coats / etc. Just let me know!
