FOR: 0-8 year olds, boys & girls
THE STORY: Founder and mama of two girls, Roos, started making her own clothing when she was just 6 years old, using scraps of fabric from her mother. After finishing her studies, she finally decided to do what she had always wanted to: start a childrens’ clothing store in Amsterdam. But that wasn’t all! Roos dreamt of producing her own brand, which proved hard in terms of finding the right factory and her wish to be as sustainable as possible. Fast forward to 2020 et voilà: Broer & Zus (‘Brother & Sister’) has its own collection and trust us: you’ll want it all…
WHY WE LOVE IT: By using simple, timeless and comfortable designs, all items are easily and wonderfully combinable, and most of them unisex – so siblings can share and inherit from one another. How’s that for sustainability! The collection is produced in a small scale factory in Portugal, constantly guarding both quality and eco-friendliness, and available year round, new items and colours are added regularly. By using the softest organic jersey cotton, Roos ensures the brand is both super comfortable and long lasting, resulting in endless wear and loved by the kids themselves. She carefully chooses soft, bright colours without adding prints – lovely basics we never knew we needed but now can’t do without!
THE COLLECTION: Playsuits, rompers, t-shirts and long sleeves, pants, hoodies, dresses, cute blouses and newborn hats. All items are easily mixed and matched, either together or with other pieces from the shop. No prints, just beautiful soft tones and fabrics. The only exception to the no-print standard are the hugely popular suits and shirts with city names stitched on the front, making for the perfect maternity gift- available in many cities worldwide.
