We are very proud to be the first store in the United Kingdom to carry Cabbages & Kings – a rare, cozy and unique line of accessories, just in time for the holidays. Let's give them a warm welcome to Quinn & Pip!
"The compelling color combinations and patterned designs of Cabbages & Kings evoke a sense of whimsical play suitable for the taste of parent and child alike.
'Customers will initially be drawn to the uniqueness of the line, but will ultimately be won over by the versatility and quality of each piece.'
"Cabbages & Kings is a strong supporter of fair trade and strives to build bridges between artisans of excellence and socially responsible consumers whenever possible.
"All of our winter accessories are hand made by artisans that reside in the Andean Valleys of Peru and Bolivia 11,000 ft. above sea level. The artisans work in collaboration with a network made up of 14 community groups, churches and non-governmental organizations that work to strengthen the capacities of local, participating institutions and base communities."
Cabbages & Kings was created in 2010 by NY-based designer and mother Alexandra Gizela, whom I had the pleasure of meeting through Instagram, finding out she was temporarily in London and then inviting her and her family to come meet us at our home. We immediately hit it off and found out she was born 1 day before me, making us both virgos and incidentally like-minded souls! What are the odds?
I love her designs and everything Cabbages & Kings stands for. I also love that these accessories are so versatile... I've already snatched Quinny's leg warmers and wear them on my arms when it's extra chilly.
We have very limited stock, but aim to carry more of their products for future seasons. For now, there is only ONE of each item you see in the store, so shake a leg!
