We love the award winning Albetta.
I suppose that's not a good enough review though is it!...
OK, so we first met Albetta at a boutique baby clothing show near Birmingham, and we spent far too long cooing over their clothing and toys. We then went home with their product catalogue and spent even more time trying to decide which of their products to buy. If we had a bottomless money-pot we might have bought them all!
What do we love about Albetta?
Albetta's baby clothes are such good quality and a unique take on classic themes. Who doesn't love a crochet lion, zebra or unicorn, and the angel wings babygrow - their most famous design - is hugely popular, and when you see it and feel it you know why. Albetta baby clothes are the type of quality you'd be proud to give as a gift to a loved one, and they are great value for money.
As for Albetta toys, well we first saw their adorable dog toy and his name is Dexter, as is our very own pooch, so that was fate! Then we saw princess Beatrice Bunny and the super-cute Keith koala and we were smitten.
Not only are their products absolutely lovely, Albetta is a very ethical business and this just goes to amplify the warm feeling we have about this business even futher.
What Albetta say about themselves
Annabel lived in Vietnam for over 15 years. She fell in love with the country and still spends as much time as she possibly can there.
When setting up Albetta, Annabel wanted to offer a healthy, safe and rewarding environment for local employees - over 90% of those who work for us are women. So we have our own factory, meaning we have total control over quality and working conditions and can make sure everything we sell is produced ethically and is of top quality. We’ve been a member of SEDEX (the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) since the early days and follow the practices of the Ethical Trading Initiative. We're also proud to support local charities and social enterprises.
It has been amazing and humbling to see Albetta grow so rapidly. We are thrilled that our Superhero Soft Skittles Set was one of the top three nominees in the 'Gifts for Children' category in the Notonthehighstreet Make Awards 2016 and so proud that it won Best Toy Design 0-2 years in the Junior Design Awards 2016.
We still do a little leap of joy at every single order and love the idea of babies and children growing up with Albetta.
