As I’ve said previously on the blog, I am quite particular when it comes to the children’s clothes. I like bright, colourful and practical clothes. Much to Violet’s dismay I’m not into frills and embellishments. And I really don’t like slogans! I like soft fabric which is comfy and durable. The Scandi style is my favourite. Effortlessly cool and beautiful.
So to have a school friend who recently launched her own children’s clothing label which fits all of my key criteria is just the bee’s knees!
Mary is the brains, blood, sweat and tears behind Bear & Babe. She’s mum to a 3 year old boy (Bear) and 1 year old girl (Babe) and lives in Sheffield. She started off making clothes for her daughter and then decided to set up her own business. The brand is quickly gathering momentum, orders are coming in thick and fast. I wonder how Mary finds the time between looking after her family and her job as a nanny!
At the Bear & Babe shop you’ll find leggings, harem pants, rompers, bibs and hoodies. Mary is always coming up with new designs so this isn’t an exhaustive list.
The cotton jersey is super soft, the seams are strong and the elastic is not too tight. Violet can be hard to please when it comes to clothes. She has sensory issues with sleeves, seams and elastic. So for her to put on her leggings and just run off and play is a testament to how comfortable they are!
They wash beautifully and the seams have all stayed intact. The colours have remained bright despite the wear of young children and regular washing. I absolutely love seeing my children in bright, fun clothing which is so comfortable.
So go and have a browse on etsy. You can’t go wrong with handmade leggings for £10 or a hoodie for £15! By supporting a small business you are helping make dreams a reality!
