Hello friends! We’re so pleased that you decided to stop by and join in the fun!

Who is {KID} independent?

We’re basically a bunch of arty types with a love of all things handmade, vintage, sustainable, limited edition and independent. We crave products that are born from the hands of an artist, the heart of a loving mother, the mind of a talented designer, or the soul of an interesting character…

The creativity behind this blog comes from inspirational conversations among friends. We run this blog in between long nights, crazy mornings, tears + tantrums, smiles + giggles and the occasional glass of wine + kilo of chocolate. One of us is a writer + designer, the rest of us just love to shop.

Most of the contributions to {KID} independent are from work-at-home-mums (WAHMS), Aunties, Nans and the occasional Dad! Supporting these small businesses is of the utmost importance to us, and we’re proud to be associated with their amazing talent!

Why independent? Why handmade?

  1. Handmade kids products are made with creativity and ingenuity; often by mums who have tried and tested their products on their kids, friends + family. Quality is key.
  2. Avoiding mass-production ensures that items are unique, and often one-of-a-kind.
  3. By purchasing from an indie designer you are supporting the livelihood of small business owners, rather than large corporations.
  4. Handmade items are made with care, in small batches. This ensures that each item is personally inspected for quality.
  5. Handmade / Indie products are often made from sustainable, eco-friendly or local materials.
