Baby and Toddler Eco-Chic
Raising a little one in Hong Kong can be a handful at times. On top of regular parenting pressures, things like pollution, lack of space and being away from loved ones can add to the strain, but now clothing your little ones responsibly won’t have to be, thanks to Bloembaby.
Founded in 2014 by young entrepreneur, Erica Chan, Bloembaby strives to bring together a truly unique selection of children’s garments from across the world to Hong Kong. Not only do they focus on offering clothing that is well designed and executed, but they also partner with designers who work in highly sustainable ways.
Travelling near and far, Erica and her team have managed to curate a truly unique selection of clothing from places such as Germany, Sweden, Australia, Canada and Malaysia. The pieces are mostly made from organic materials and are ethically sourced and produced, to ensure maximum comfort for newborns and up.
Of course they want your baby to look amazing too, so they have worked hard to offer a selection of fun and playful outfits. Strong geometric shapes, a range of patterns and colours and gorgeous screen printing are just some of the whimsical details that can be found from brands on offer at Bloembaby. There is no doubt that your wee one will be looking fantastic and feeling comfortable too!
“I want parents to be able to dress their babies as individuals, in clothes that have personality,” says Erica, “But it’s also important that eco-friendly fabrics and products become more accessible so Bloembaby strives to support small businesses that focus on greener and cleaner technology to produce their fabrics.” She’s picked out some of her favourite outfits for boys and girls, which embody the Bloembaby eco-chic ethos.
