This week in my maternity series I am bringing you a closer look at one of my must haves from last weeks Baby Shower Gifts. I would like to introduce you to local Vancouver company, Vonbon Apparel. Founded in 2013 by sisters Jennifer and Kristin, Vonbon features Organic Cotton Goods for both baby and child. The two sisters noticed the children’s apparel market was lacking in modern and neutral attire, they set out to fill the void and boy did the achieve just that. Designed and crafted in Vancouver, Vonbon apparel brings you a wide variety of children based items. Everything from leggings to bibs and blankets, all featuring bold, modern prints in a selection of neutral palettes. Not only do they use water based inks and Organic Cotton to ensure your little ones sensitive skin is well cared for, all of their orders are sent out in eco friendly packaging to help save the environment! Did I mention that they design all their own prints? Cause they do!
My first experience with Vonbon was last year not long after Hazel was born, they had recently launched their headbands and of course I had to have them! I loved them so much that when they were launching their leggings at Make It Vancouver last fall, I set out to go check them out in person. When I arrived at their booth everything was set up so beautifully, it was hard not to buy one of everything they had on display! We purchased our first pair of Vonbon leggings that day and I have been in love ever since! They are amazingly soft and get softer with every wash. The neutral colors and fun prints fit in quite nicely with the rest of Hazels wardrobe and are a nice change from those you find at the big box stores. I am not a huge fan of anything overly girly (think shirts with tutus attached) so the selection of neutral prints are a huge win in my books, not to mention Evan approves and even has a few favorites! Not only are the products of the highest quality but they are an absolute pleasure to work with. And with that I have to take a second to say Congratulations to Jen on the birth of her sweet little girl, Esti, this past weekend. This little cutie is going to be one stylish little girl!
This fall they did a refresh on their current colors and prints, adding a few new exciting colors and discontinuing a few older ones. We were very fortunate to receive a pair of the Rose Stripe Leggings . While I love all of the other colors and prints I think these might be my new favorites. The rose is nice and soft, just the right amount of pink, making them delicate and girly but not over doing it. I could hardly wait to get them on Hazel when they arrived and take pictures to share with you. Well it appeared my model preferred to be behind the camera instead of in front, thank goodness for Iphones 🙂
