Invest in quality baby gear that doesn’t cramp your style and will not only look flattering but make parenthood so much easier. Well, you can have everything your baby needs to thrive, on display, while also feeling like you’re a cool mom (and dad too).
From handcrafted knitwear to diaper bags that look far too unassuming to hold wet wipes, there’s a smart dupe for everyone who wants to hold onto their style as they embark on parenthood.
Here are a few bespoke baby gear items from trendy baby and toddler companies for design-loving parents:
Do you miss those hand-knitted baby clothes that granny used to knit for you? Nunabean started with a small project producing hand-stitched, soft-soled leather shoes for tiny feet. From the start, Nunabean is obsessed with the details, from the buttery softness of the leather to the muted colour palette. But their care doesn’t stop there…
Unique, luxury, quality baby wear handcrafted by local ladies in and around the Mother City. Without a doubt, baby wear that is sprouted with love, in Cape Town.
Mama’s can protect those little one’s tiny feet with a pair of Nunabean Pram Shoes, and clothe them in nature-inspired beanies, eco-booties, jerseys just-like-granny-use-to-knit or pineapple bobble bamboo rompers and do try their comfy and adjustable EasyWear Collection.
And when it comes to the raw materials that they source for their products, everything is natural, local, eco-friendly, and hand-spun, sewn, or dyed. And because of this, each one of their items has an utterly unique signature.
