Cashmirino: The Ultimate In Sustainable Artisan Fashion For Babies & Children

Cashmirino is a family-owned, high-end children’s clothes label born in Italy and based in London. With strong ethical values and a loyal international customer base, the luxury children’s clothing brand is setting the bar high for designer slow fashion for kids.

Unique high-end clothing for babies & children

A children’s clothing atelier best known for their luxury cashmere collections, Cashmirino was founded by Maria Busquets, after the birth of her second daughter in 2000. After having children, being a mum made Maria realise there was a huge gap in the market for colourful and quality cashmere clothes for little ones and so Cashmirino was born.

Fast forward to today and the company now offer a whole host of unique and sustainable clothes made from 100% natural fibres. The range includes gorgeous knitwear, clothes, shoes and accessories as well as the most unique hand-smocked and hand-embroidered dresses you’ve ever seen.

Dressing children as children

At the heart of Cashmirino’s ethos is the belief that children should be dressed as children. They want your little ones to love the clothes they’re in and to feel comfortable and free to embrace whatever adventure the day might bring. This philosophy plays a huge part in the magical story behind every piece of clothing made by the brand.

Slow fashion and sustainable clothes for kids

The Cashmirino team travel the globe to find the finest 100% natural fibres to create classic children’s clothes and outfits that can be worn again and again. This careful process takes better care of the environment and also the children that wear their clothes.

“Cashmirino garments are built to stand the test of time. They’re beautiful heirloom pieces that can be passed down through the family,” says Leo Bamford, founder of My Baba.

Fine fabrics from England, Italy and Spain, cashmere from Inner Mongolia, Pima cotton and Royal Alpaca from Peru are all used to create comfortable and unique outfits for kids. Each garment is designed to be absorbent, breathable and hypoallergenic. Using the best natural fibres will also help to regulate your child’s temperature, which is vital when dressing babies and toddlers who cannot tell you when they are feeling too hot or too cold.

Artisan production and handmade finishing

Everything you see has been crafted with love and passion. There’s no fast fashion or faceless factories involved in any part of Cashmirino’s business model. Age-old traditions of hand embroidery, crocheting, appliqué and smocking are kept alive by artisan production and traditional manual skills.

Cashmirino works closely with autonomous and highly skilled workers as well as their wider communities to produce classic and durable pieces that can be worn and passed down through generations.

Smocked dresses

Cashmirino’s beautiful selection of smocked dresses are all painstakingly hand-stitched by different artisans in a true labour of love. Each dress boasts a more playful print than the next. It’s no exaggeration to say that these dresses are each a work of art.

Cut in Italy, the front panels of the dress are sent to female artisans in Italy and Spain to be hand smocked and hand embroidered. These panels are then sent to a small manufacturer in northern Italy to be sewn together with the rest of the dress.

“It’s a time-consuming process,” says Maria, “each smocking piece takes eight to nine hours.”
