Made out of soft, hand dyed and block-printed fabrics, Velveteen reinvents a repertoire of classic and sophisticated silhouettes for children up to 6 y old. Based in Hong Kong, this young brand launched in 2012 exhibited at Playtime New York last August is growing nicely.
If I would have to summarise Oeuf, I would call it “the brand that always surprises us“. Oeuf quickly grew from offering just a crib to a whole lifestyle brand that respects the planet, understands the essence of childhood and always brings new and fun ideas. We love their latest collaboration with a young photographer from Estonia, Katrina Tang.

Latvian brand Paade Mode one of my Coups de Coeur at Playtime last July. I found that collection very fresh, honest, with great organic fabrics and beautiful knitted pieces. I also particularly appreciate chatting with the founder, Linda Raituma, so enthusiastic about textile&fashion in general, so much into finding interesting ways of developing a brand today.
