Our products are made for children but designed for parents. We use traditional designs in a fun & quirky way through colour and pattern. We make and manufacture all our products here in the UK and use the best quality yarns and ingredients possible to ensure the best quality product we can.
OUR STORY SO FAR...
Katie and Caroline met at art school, we have both had careers fashion & retail and now have families of our own. With (almost) 25years experience in the industry between us we know there are many good bits and bad bits. We have decided to concentrate on the good bits! We make and manufacture our products in the UK meaning we can keep an eye on the production chain, ensure a more sustainable supply chain and have less of an environmental impact while designing & manufacturing practical but fun products. We have joined the Made in Britain campaign.
We are inspired by fun pattern, colour and adventure and aim to create products which Children will want to wear and Parents can love too! We want to create pieces which will last both time and style and you would want to pass on.
We are also keen to support manufacturing in the UK and use family-run factories to produce our products.
A super-soft and naturally breathable yarn. It's better for the environment too ....no sheep were harmed in the making of our products!
- Merino is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture away from the skin as well as being slightly moisture repellent.
- Like cotton, wool absorbs water (up to 1/3 its weight), but, unlike cotton, wool retains warmth when wet.
- Like most wools, merino contains lanolin, which has antibacterial properties.
- Merino is one of the softest types of wool available due to finer fibres and smaller scales.
- Merino has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio compared to other wools, trapping body heat similar to the way a sleeping bag warms its occupant.
ORGANIC SKINCARE FOR ALL THE FAMILY
The Lala & Bea Organic Family Skincare range has been designed to be suitable for use by all the family. We worked with an amazingly talented Medical Herbalist from Brighton Apothecary. Marion's background in Pharmacology from her degree at UCL teamed with her Herbalist Medicine degree plus being a mother of two makes her expertise second to none and the perfect choice for us. Our products can also be purchased from the Brighton Apothecary store
We tweaked and developed our products until we were 100% with the texture, fragrance and importantly performance then added beautiful packaging (UK sourced) and matt vinyl stickers (so they don't soak up any oils from the product and disintegrate) to create an initial range we are over the moon about and use daily yourself. It was great fun to develop, adding a little more of this, a bit less of that until we had the perfect products. We will be developing more products to add to the range this coming year.
Free from parabens, natural and organic ingredients are used in our skincare and where possible, any ingredients that are grown in the UK are used. We have developed our creams & oils with a medical herbalist to ensure they are as nourishing and healing as possible for use by the entire family. Our skincare is not tested on animals and all of our ingredients and packaging come from natural and sustainable sources.
