Piupia is an organic children’s wear label designed in London, and made in Portugal. The brains behind the operation, Claudia Carvalho, describes her story as “Portuguese artist girl meets German artist boy in London. First comes love, then comes a teeny tiny person all of their own…” Claudia’s background is in graphic design and 3D art. Her future is in beautiful organic pieces for kids!
The Piupia collection is crafted from the finest 100% organic cotton jersey, which is incredibly soft and super comfortable against delicate skin. Claudia’s design style is modern and whimsical, with a mix of bright, bold hues, and quirky, playful patterns. The items in this season’s collection mix and match effortlessly, and can also be paired with other basics that you already have in your wardrobe. I’m especially loving the Cactus tees and dresses.
