Hektik.cc, the design company from The Netherlands, known for the quirky and adorable animal characters that adorn their line of cool baby clothing. The fun-loving, quirky Hektik universe and its many, cute inhabitants are the brainchild of Dutch designers Gaudi Hoedaya and Ursula Wurzinger.

Both Margareth and Jeannette had many years'' experience in the fashion industry when each of them became a mother for the first time.

MINA was founded in 2011 by Linda Gullberg who, for many years have been working as a designer for some of the world''s leading footwear brands. As she explored the range of children''s shoes that was available she found a gap between form and function and wanted to fill it with shoes that are both of highest quality and that both children and their parents would love to wear. MINA is about bringing beauty, happiness, fun and quality together in shoes that will make those little feet happy and the bigger ones jealous and on a mission to fill that gap by putting shoes on the feet of kids who want to express their own creativity and humor.
Launched in 2012, the Monster''s Baby! collection is available for babies and kids aged 0 - 8 years. The brand is instantly recognisable thanks to its unique graphic prints, which are featured throughout the collection including t-shirts and babygrows. Monster''s Baby! is unlike most other kids brands as it has been created by two ambitious London boys, VK Assi and Joe Olswang. Unable to find cool t-shirts for their little nieces and nephews, VK and Joe set about designing their own range. With VK''s background in graphic design and Joe''s career in the music industry, the two friends were well positioned to create a contemporary brand aimed at style conscious parents.

Modeerska Huset is also the oldest house in a little rural town called Monster''s in the county of Smaland in Sweden, were Jenny''s granddad was born and grew up.

Olive''s friend Pop is a collection of vintage-inspired, original clothing for little girls, but as that''s a bit long, we call it ''nostalgic playwear''. Our creations are inspired by proper little-girls'' clothes of our grandmothers'' generation, Post WWII, and from a time when little girls looked like little girls. While we do think of it as special, our clothing isn''t ''special occasion'' wear. Instead, everything we make is made to be played in and grubbed up. Little modern takes on vintage designs, produced in beautiful, but wearable and durable fabrics, for today''s little ladies. A bit like modern-day heirlooms.
PLUTO is an eclectic and exuberant collection of graphic tees for babies and toddlers. With a style that is bold and colorful and a focus on playful typography, our designs run the gamut from silly and sweet to clever and cool. For us, the little blank t-shirt is nothing less than the perfect artist''s canvas! Of course, as canvases go, they''ll never hang in a museum, be put up for auction, or placed inside a frame. Yet tee shirts are art that takes itself not too seriously art that is fun, and can be worn by kids the world over. From color and typography, to children''s books and vintage signs . Our inspirations are everywhere. We most love t-shirts because they allow us to play. To have fun with WORDS and IDEAS and IMAGES.

We''re delighted and honoured to be supporting Big Blue Cuddle - it''s a really cool idea and everybody involved wins - from suppliers to customers to charities, so what''s not to like:) We hope you enjoy a Supernatural Cuddle from our ethically produced super-soft dresses, leggings and T Shirts made from Organic Cotton and Modal - to feel it is to love it. The world''s desire for cotton products is proving too much for our earth to cope with as it takes up loads of water and land to be produced, so the idea behind Supernatural Kids Clothing is to find new natural based fibres to give us equally lovely alternatives. We''ll be using fabrics made from anything from seaweed to milk - as long as they are sustainably produced, soft to touch and have really good after care qualities ie they don''t need things like energy-hungry processes such as tumble drying! Did you know that if everyone in the UK who has a dryer did just one load less drying a year, we''d save enough CO2 to power 36% of all the street lights in Northern Ireland! (ref The Green Wiki thing).
