Mini Hearts Club⌇ Juniors Design Blog ⌇ www.juniorsdesignblog.com

Eeeep!!!! I am over-the-moon excited to introduce you to a truly gorgeous NZ brand, Mini Hearts Club!

All their garments are made in New Zealand using beautiful linen and organic cotton in stunningly simple styles letting the silhouettes and fabric speak for themselves.

With a neutral palette of black and grey with the classic stripe and perfect soft pink thrown in for good measure, Mini Hearts Club are creating quality, timeless pieces for your mini one which say NO to the fast fashion trend. The collection is made to layer, made to last, made to be played in and definitely to be admired.

The perfect range of basics which feel anything but basic! A couple of my favourites are the Linen Lawn Dress and the Roam Harem Leggings (although it’s hard to choose!!)

Have a look through the range with us and then go and browse here!

Niche Textile Studio

Niche Textile Studio⌇ Juniors Design Blog ⌇ www.juniorsdesignblog.com

It is with great enthusiasm that we introduce you to the MOST beautiful baby blankets we have ever laid our eyes on! Clever Christine from Niche Textile Studio in Wellington is hand weaving a range of sustainably minded blankets from New Zealand wool, the result is incredibly well made and thoughtfully designed pieces which would most certainly be handed down for generations to come.

Naturally coloured wool (meaning no dyes are used and energy and water use in yarn production is reduced) complements the three different motifs available in the range. These motifs have been translated into a textured self-stitched double cloth weave structure with 2 layers of cloth on the loom woven together at little moments of pattern, creating loft and warmth.

Each blanket is available in either Wahakura (moses basket) size (65cm x 80cm) or Cot size (105cm x 120cm). We also spy Niche’s equally beautiful range of hand woven cushions (see here and here) which would be just stunning in a nursery (or anywhere in the house)!! Come and look through the different motifs with us, I’m not sure I can pick a favourite (although the Ocean waves is really speaking to me!)… Let us know your favourite in the comments!

Imagine a world where kids can make their own beds, and they stay made!
Finny & Co have made this a reality with their genius sheet sets AND they have just released some super cute wee pillowcases too!

This one is a real game changer for kids and parents, not only are kids able to make their own beds but once they’re made they stay made! These are really well designed, high quality sheets with a clever wee system using buttons to keep the top and bottom together. Scroll through to the bottom for a 60 second video showing you how they work.

We also have to show you the brand new Pillow Casies friends just released! With three designs to choose from, each pillowcase has it’s own character: Florence the Penguin, Archie the Fox and Rupert the Panda. They have wee arms so they’re like a cross between a soft toy and a pillowcase. Very cute and a PERFECT Christmas pressie / stocking stuffer at just $29 each!
