Cabbages & Kings is all about providing practical and stylish essentials for infants and children without compromising their safety and the quality of the pieces. The brand is a strong supporter of fair trade and strives to build bridges between artisans of excellence and socially responsible consumers. All of the accessories are hand made by the Sumaq Ruracc, a Quechua-speaking group that live in an Andean Valley in Peru. The Sumaq Ruracc work in collaboration with a network made up of 14 community groups, churches and non-governmental organizations called Bridge of Hope that work to strengthen the capacities of local, participating institutions and base communities.
