Just back from a whirlwind week of putting the finishing touches to our winter range. The great news is that this season we have included boys, 1-5 years!
It was exciting to see the finished samples after months of preparation and planning. It’s going to be a fun season!
Just like BubbleandSqueak summer, our objective has been to put together a selection of pieces that are different , that can be mixed and matched for maximum ‘wearibility’, are easy to wear and to maintain while keeping everything affordable. Again limited to 50 of each size per style.
This season it’s all about the layering of textures and colours. We have used a warm rich palette to brighten the dullest of grey winter days – aubergine, loganberry & oriental red to name just a few. And like our summer range we have added loads of fun accessories (and yes - everything can be removed prior to washing) to make our pieces a little different and fun for our BIG little personalities wearing them.
I can’t wait to share BubbleandSqueak winter with you - scheduled for release early May.
You may have noticed Half The Sky featured on our homepage. This is a fantastic charity that works with children in orphanages in China. Thousands of children are now enrolled in Half the Sky’s five innovative programs that provide love and hope for children throughout the country.
For me this quote from their training manual says it all:
Changing children’s lives does not require new facilities or expensive playthings or complicated new procedures. Human contact is the most important ingredient, and caretakers can make a huge difference—just by taking an extra moment whenever possible to hold the babies, talk to the children, hug them all, and assure them that someone cares.
This year we are involved in their 'Baby Sisters Infant Nuture Program' - Half the Sky employs, trains and supervises local women to work as full-time nannies, providing orphaned babies the stimulation, bonding and affection that are essential to a healthy start. Our sponsorship goes towards paying a nanny's salary.
The time an orphaned child spends in an institution, many months at least and often many years, has a tremendous impact on that childs long term development. This is a charity that is making a meaningful difference to childrens lives. We are thrilled to be part of that difference.
