It was such an honour to have been asked to be eco and organic ambassador at this year’s Bubble London trade show. There are so many wonderful eco companies and I really enjoyed meeting them this morning.

I was completely smitten with the little grows by Annaliv which swapped the usual polyester lining for soft organic cosiness.

It was a real pleasure to meet IKKI whose vision is to transform the way we perceive wool. They have a really lovely story.

Born in Bath, Sleepy Doe sleepwear and jersey bedding was one of our favourites, and we loved seeing the quirky new collections from Smafolk, who are all about organic cotton.

Although it was extremely hard to choose, there had to be one winner, The Great British Baby Company. I love everything about this brand, and in particular it’s history and British heritage. Their simple garments are beautifully made from the most noble, natural materials, with the best craftsmanship and cloth, which is sourced from mills across the British isles, with more than 200 years of history. Each piece is made from start to hand finish in British workshops by skilled workman who use old techniques to create these beautiful pieces.

Their British wool, cloths and cashmere are all very soft, but durable at the same time, and also very warm, and I love the size of the buttons that are easy for little ones to manage. The Great British Baby Company with zero carbon footprint pride themselves on standing apart in an industry dominated by mass production, manmade fabrics and outsourcing. We wish them all the best for the future.
