Hop into spring with Mini la Mode’s beautiful collection of hand-embroidered baby clothes and pyjamas, inspired by the enchanting tales of Peter Rabbit.
Beatrix Potter’s tales from the burrows are brought to life thanks to exquisite hand-embroidery on the softest of fabrics. Produced under license from Penguin, Peter Rabbit and Friends are embroidered from the original charming illustrations for a truly nostalgic collection everyone will love.
Anything from Mini la Mode’s Peter Rabbit™ and Friends babywear collection would make the perfect Easter gift. Designed to be affordable, you’ll find there’s been no compromise on quality or eco-credentials. At the heart of Mini-La-Mode’s ethos is sustainable, eco-ethic and Fair-Trade practices that are upheld from design to creation of each garment.
Mini la Mode’s Jemima Puddleduck Pyjamas are made from super soft cotton in pink spot or blue spot. We love the intricate attention to detail, note the delicate frill around the collar and cute embroidered chicks on the pockets.
The perfect Easter Sunday outfit, these adorable dungarees are made even more special with a hand-embroidered Peter Rabbit taking centre stage on the chest. The dungarees are paired with a body, featuring two little carrots on the collar for that extra-special finishing touch.
This gorgeous smocked romper is adorned with a hand-embroidered Jemima Puddleduck enjoying her days in the garden. The romper fastens at the back with buttons and there are poppers between the legs for easy changes.
In dreamy blue, this hand-smocked sleepsuit features a mischievous Peter Rabbit carefully hand-embroidered on the chest. It fastens with poppers at the back and between the legs.
If you’re looking for your home from hospital outfit, you’ve found it. All of Mini la Mode’s collections are made from Pima, the ‘cashmere of cotton’, making it the ideal fabric for even the most delicate newborn skin. While the vast majority of cotton harvesting worldwide is done by machine, Mini la Mode’s Pima cotton is hand-picked, producing longer fibres, resulting in an unrivalled breathable, soft and silky material.
Grown in the Pima region of Peru on traditional family-operated farms, crops are gathered using ancient, sustainable, eco-friendly and organic farming methods. These methods have remained unchanged for hundreds of years, and vastly reduce the environmental impact of cotton production.
Mini la Mode’s collections are handmade by skilled artisans in Peru. Mostly mothers with young children, these skilled craft workers are able to work from home and earn an income of their own. This can be a lifeline to such families, often living in socially deprived inner-city areas, especially during recent times.
Mini la Mode’s luxury heirloom pieces are created to be loved, treasured and passed down for many springtimes to come.
