How lovely these images on the A/W13 collection of Tulip & Nettle are; the result of a collaboration between Tulip & Nettle and photographer Anita Clark. Tulip and Nettle children’s clothes are made FOR children not BY children. Their clothes are all manufactured in the North East of England in a few small excellent factory units, by properly paid adults.
They started with just the Tulip label in 1998. Nettle came into being when a customer pointed out to them that her 12 year old son found the Tulip label in his trousers a shade girly. Grown Up clothes are a more recent introduction to the range. The look was originally inspired by the owner’s children, but the name came from her dogs! Tulip was a much loved Pug and Nettle is a Jack Russell.
Anita has been a photographer for years but found herself increasingly drawn to kid’s fashion after the birth of her two children. Her work has been featured by La Petite, RAWR and Babiekins.
Clothes to love, cherish, and above all, actually wear every day.
