UK-based and family-owned brand Palava was passed down through the generations since 1854. After a few big changes to the company, Bryony decided to bring Palava back to life. Starting with children's designs, Bryony started to draw her own illustrative prints. Drawing her inspiration from the storybooks she had read as a child and put adventure into children's clothing. Each fabric has a story to tell, running along the hem of the dress, and each ethcially-made style for you (and your little one, too) comes with its very own little storybook. All the garments are ethically made of organic cotton in the UK. So that you know your clothes are making a positive impact upon the world. By exploring the adventures that take place on the border of the dress, and in the storybook, we hope Palava outfits will have a special meaning and be handed down from generation to generation.Show products
