My mission is to marry stylish living with beautifully made products that appeal to your small people.
I work to produce the finest craftsmanship bringing my original handmade designs to life and proudly ship them to new homes worldwide and I'm growing a collection of beautiful, carefully sourced gifts and cards too.
Our story begins in 2014 and continues to grow and grow.
Each garland, cloud or mobile is made to my original design and concept that I've spent many hours creating, based on current trends in children's interior design.
Our family business is based in Knaresborough, England, and was started whilst I was on maternity leave from my career in the luxury retail sector back in 2013/14. At the time, there was nothing like my style in the marketplace and word soon spread through Instagram. I began an Etsy shop and produced a range of handcrafted felt garlands and cloud wall hangings which I made in between nursing baby and thanks to the power of social media has gone from strength to strength, now with over 74 000 followers on Instagram (@velveteen_babies)
Sadly, I'm finding all too often now that my designs are being emulated by others, but it makes me strive to keep producing new ideas and to stay true to myself and the brand I've worked so passionately to produce.
