Belgium based Hvid, founded by Caroline Camerlynck, make exquisitely crafted knitted goods for babies and young children. From blankets and booties to cold weather accessories, cocoons and comforters. These are heirloom pieces to treasure, perfect in every way.
When the Danish speak of ‘hvid', they speak of the purest colour of all: white - a colour that is as fresh as snow and soft as milk. Interestingly, every Hvid design is first made in pure white, to create the finest subtleties in the pattern and find the perfect weight. There is a genuine commitment to producing the very finest, luxury, soft knitted goods possible that is reflected in the beauty of every piece produced.
All Aboard! Mini Rodini on the Trans-Siberian Railway
Mini Rodini are a firm favourite here at Junior Edition - they are one of our longest standing brands and like you, we love their quirky and colourful prints, the quality (their clothing washes and wears SO well) and most importantly of all, that everything is manufactured with care for animals, people and the planet.
Their latest collection is an absolute corker and draws its inspiration from the slow and romantic journey by train across the continent on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Prints and styles represent a number of different stops en route that include Stockholm, Moscow, Ulan Bator, Beijing and Seoul.
Scandinvian Style - Konges Slojd
Konges Sløjd is a beautiful brand hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their design philosophy is to create simple, functional and quality driven product that is undeniably Scandinavian in style and ethically produced.
Established in 2014, we have loved and stocked Konges Sløjd for several years now. It is one of our go-to brands for parents with an eye for interior design and is incredibly popular both in-store or online with people buying for baby showers and new babies or simply treating their little one or themselves to something new.
The latest collection sees some of their most popular products re-imagined in new prints and colour palettes as well as some gorgeous new additions that we are really excited to share with you.
The lemon is one of their signature prints and a personal favourite here, one of the new products we really love is the lemon shape sorter. Shape sorters are just brilliant developmental toys, encouraging little ones to learn how to pick up objects and match their shapes. Made from 100% FSC certified wood this is a beautiful addition to any nursery.
Konges Sløjd are renowned for making wonderful teethers. These are SO popular and we've had some designs sell out in a matter of days previously! New for this season are racoons, elephants, dragons, ice creams, lemons and our personal favourite, the tooth! Made from 100% natural Hevea rubber for soothing sore gums. They are a perfect size for tiny hands to grip and feel.
Most people are familiar with the gorgeous changing mats that Konges Sløjd make for the home but did you that they do portable/travel changing pads too? Available in three new prints this season including blue blossom mist and flower field seen here. The changing pads have a magnetic closure that makes it easy to open and close with one hand and two pockets for nappies, wipes and other changing essentials. Made from 100% organic cotton they are the perfect size to pop in a bag when you're out and about.
Also new this season in is the Mio pacifier with an orthodontic teat, available in four gorgeous colours - blush, light green, lemonade and rose. We have a selection of coordinating pacifier straps available online including some beautiful knitted ones made from soft lambswool with a wooden clip and rubber pacifier loop. These are ideal for securely holding on to your little one's pacifier so it won't get lost or fall onto the floor, you don't want to lose pacifiers that are this pretty!
Something I absolutely lusted after when I was (a lot) younger was a beautiful box to keep all of my treasures and jewellery. These beautiful musical versions come in two colour-ways (cream and blue) with different designs and are complete with a mirror and a drawer. They make for such a lovely gift for a slightly older child and its really interesting to see they consider their treasures to be!
The beautiful stacking fruit toys also deserve a special mention. Available both as the strawberry seen here and a lemon. Again made from 100% FSC certified wood, they are great for encouraging hand/eye coordination and counting skills.
The complete collection is available to view online here. Whilst our shop in the heart of Brighton's beautiful North Laine remains closed at the moment our online business is operating as normal. Stay safe and shop from home!
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These
We've been busy hanging mobiles from the shop ceiling this week and they are drawing so many admiring comments! They really are SO mesmerising as they gently twirl in the air, it's easy to see why they have such a calming effect on babies.
Quite coincidentally all of our current mobiles hail from Scandinavia. Produced by three very different but equally stylish brands, we have something for every nursery.
Konges Sløjd have designed these beautiful cloud mobiles with felted clouds and silver or gold coloured droplets, available in 3 subtly different colour-ways and coordinating beautifully with some of the other nursery pieces we stock by the brand.
Konges Sløjd are also responsible for this stunning swan in flight mobile, a truly unique piece that soars gracefully overhead here in our Brighton shop - it makes for a welcome change from those noisy seagulls!
The Loullou-universe is a concept evoked from the imagination of Lærke Rune, a Copenhagen based product and furniture Designer who has created a small line of architectural toys. All of their products are made from sustainable and organic materials, with all wood used FSC-certified. Their mobiles come in two different styles, "Up in the Air' and 'Stardust', simple and stylish. If you haven't seen their gorgeous baby gym and accessories yet, you must take a look but be warned, its an absolute must-have!
We have so many beautiful pieces from the Liewood range, from muslins and swaddles to the most adorable wash mitts and hooded towels but the pom-pom cloud mobiles have been the biggest hit in store, available in multiple colour combinations and sizes, they come packaged in a cute box which makes them the most adorable new baby gift.
