The name is a synonym for loud children and proud parents.

Since the company was founded in 2008 priority is on the combination of sustainability, fair production and a special style. Their organic children’s and baby clothes are among the best.

The old stereotype fortunately is obsolete nowadays. Nobody has to think about terms like scratchy, shapeless, colourless and hand wash when it comes to ecological fashion for kids.

Loud + Proud offers kids’ clothes that are trendy and comfortable and which at the same time stops chemicals from entering the wardrobe of the little ones.

In addition Loud + Proud puts a lot of emphasis on production under fair conditions. Whoever has seen reports about production plants in Asia where children and adults work at the expense of their health many hours per day, under the worst labour conditions, just for stylish clothes for the western countries, would like to contribute to the change this situation.

At Loud + Proud there is the opportunity to do this as they produce their products in Portugal, Hungary and Germany and therefore able to monitor every single production step.

Nanchen Dolls have been hand made in a small manufactory in Martinhagen/Schauenburg since 1983. Martinhangen is located about 15 km to the west of Kassel, on the periphery of the Harbichtswald Nature Park.In our company building, somewhat hidden at the foot of the Martinstein hill, lived one of the first tailors of this 1500 strong village.

Today, no less than 15 employees work on producing Nanchen Dolls. The doll’s faces are hand-painted directly in the manufactory. Due to the dolls being individually hand-painted, each and every one is given its own character. Only materials from controlled organic cultivation and controlled organic farming are used for Nanchen Natur products. Nanchen Dolls are sold worldwide.

On top of the many retailers in Europe who sell Nanchen Dolls, there are many businesses and internet providers which belong to our group of buyers. Due to their timeless look Nanchen natural products have been present in the high-quality toy market for over 30 years.

In 2012, we, Janah von Buttlar and Juliane Krueger, took over Nanchen Natur from its previous owners, Nana and Peter Sendke. They continue to lead this traditional company with great joy and vigour just as they would have wanted. As children, they too played with the beautiful Nanchen Natur dolls and would love to give your children the same joy and pleasure they had with their high-quality hand-made products.

G Nancy

g-nancy

G.NANCY is the realized dream of Sydney-based kiwi designer Georgia Nancy Holmes.

The charming range is a collection of simple but beautiful long and short PJ sets and nighties in a collection of prints – G.Nancy’s trademark stars and a new print every season exclusively designed in collaboration with her husband, partner in love and life – illustrator and artist Oli Holmes.

Georgia started the company shortly after completing her degree in fashion aged 23 and in just 2 years has built up a loyal following of customers from New York to London to tiny towns in rural Australia. Now a mum herself, to eight-week-old beautiful baby Ivy, Georgia has become even more inspired to create, fun-loving and practical PJs that help little ones get a good nights’ sleep.

“Having grown up in the country where baths were taken at four in the afternoon and we were rarely out of our pyjamas, it is truly a labor of love for me to create a beautiful product that kids can happily lounge around in on lazy mornings or pull on in the early evening just to feel cosy and snug,” said Georgia, a former nanny with a wealth of experience getting kids into their PJs!

Once the little ones are tucked up in bed in their G.Nancy PJs, parents can rest easy too: all of the pyjamas are made from organic cotton, coloured with the highest quality ethical dyes and printed with the softest water-based inks.

The PJs are truly a local product from start to finish, having been designed, dyed, printed, and manufactured in Sydney.

We hope your children have the most magical adventures in their G.NANCY pyjamas.
