The Little Tailor
Celebrate a new baby with a timeless keepsake
Taking your newborn baby home for the first time is one of the most exciting (and let’s face it, slightly daunting) moments as a new parent. It’s time to celebrate and treasure that little bundle in your arms, and only the best will do for them, which means clothing that’s well-made and designed with a baby’s sensitive skin in mind.
Quality is something The Little Tailor know all about, with their beautiful bespoke baby-wear for ages 0-6 months. The brand launched in A/W 2014 and they were finalists for the Rising Star Bubble Award in 2014. The entire collection is made from 100% cotton or cotton-cashmere mixes, resulting in a range that is soft, breathable and gentle against delicate newborn’s skin. But the best bit? This is a brand that combines luxury with practicality, so all pieces are washing-machine friendly – pretty much essential when it comes to babies.
There are some classic pieces, including their signature rocking-horse jumper, cardigans, adorable hooded pixie jackets, super-soft blankets, hats and hand-knitted booties and teddies. We’re slightly obsessed with the new crane bird, swan and rabbit prints, too. But it’s the colour palette that had us at hello. Specially selected soft muted shades of pink, blue, charcoal and cream, it just adds to the luxurious feel and timeless charm of the collection.
Then there are the final finishing touches. Every item is hand-wrapped in tissue paper, and can be packaged in a luxurious gift box, making it an ideal present for a new mum, or just a special, personal keepsake for your own new baby. For The Little Tailor, it’s about making pieces to be treasured. Treasured until, perhaps, one day – *whisper it* – the grandchildren can wear it…
