Nestledown Coat - Baby Wearing + Maternity

Create a dreamy baby wearing coat for men + women, by converting our popular Forester coat into a stunning baby-wearing garment. The two nifty "zip in" panels - for both baby-wearing and pregnancy - can be removed when not required for a truly versatile garment.

Twig + Tale

From my treehouse studio hidden within the New Zealand forest, I draft clothing and toy patterns that capture the essence of childhood storybooks. To me, sewing is a magical journey, full of adventure and the wonderful tales that each material holds. I believe in reusing fabrics when possible and bringing new life to old things, in spending time (sometimes together, sometimes alone) to let the spirit run free.

Twig & Tale is for everyone who shares a love of creativity and an adventurous spirit—beginner sewers especially! It's a celebration of the innocence of childhood and the wonder of nature. It's about comfy clothes and warm things like hugs and capes and coats. It's about handmade, love, and imaginary play—featuring classic, simple patterns that inspire us all to tell a story.
