True fashion for mini's


True fashion for mini's

Since Charlie + Mary opened their conceptstore in De Pijp in Amsterdam six years ago, people have asked them about children's clothing. Clothing that's made in a fair and sustainable way. Good news: the gals are now working together with brand new sustainable kids label Nonni & Manni! Check out Charlie + Mary's kids room, which will open as a shop-in-shop concept, on Tuesday 1 September 2015.

Nonni & Manni is a label founded by Marije Cnossen: designer and mum! Marije didn't want to contribute to the pile of wasted clothes, she rather cleans it up. Therefor she only uses existing materials to create Nonni & Manni pieces. Beautiful cashmere and wool sweaters are turned into the most comfy baby or toddler trousers you can imagine! Thanks to the clothing SYMPANIE and INBOEDEL-OPGERUIMD donated, the very first Nonni & Manni AW 16 collection was created. Every piece is one of a kind, made by hand and with a lot of care and attention for detail.

Next to her own label, Marije Cnossen co-curated a bunch of other interesting sustainable and fair labels for Charlie + Mary's smallest visitors. Next to the Nonni & Manni collection you will also find books with arty images, fun accessories, cool little sneakers by Paris based label Veja, baby body's, tops made of super soft organic cotton and much more.

The theme of the kids room in Charlie + Mary's conceptstore in De Pijp is: 'Work with what you have,' with a wink to educating the little ones in the field of sustainable living. The space is decorated with vintage classroom elements and a lot of products are made by hand out of used materials. All brands stocked in Charlie + Mary's kids room create their labels with respect for people and planet, plus they use innovative and sustainable fabrics and production methods.

Maximum care for our mini's!
