Eden and Zoe are the names of my two daughters. They are my inspiration and motivation.
eden & zoe was started with a wish to keep my daughters comfortable, cozy and stylish. My girls decided that their knitwear was too “itchy”, so I started looking into cashmere and other natural materials for them. I found it hard to find quality knitwear in styles that I/my girls liked, so I decided to create the clothes myself.
My aim is to design knitwear for children that is sophisticated and understated. I believe in classic styling with a modern twist. I like to think about the details that make a garment unique yet timeless. Most importantly, it is about your child feeling comfortable and confident in what she/he is wearing.
Each collection is made in small quantities to ensure quality and exclusivity. Each piece is created
using a hand-operated knitting loom and finished by hand.
eden & zoe knitwear is made to be worn, enjoyed and shared.
INSPIRATION - SS17 COLLECTION
“These are the days of the endless summer, these are the days, the time is now.
There is no past, there’s only future, there’s only here, there’s only now.” - Van Morrison
“The Endless Summer” is the inspiration for this spring/summer collection. How wonderful would it be to follow the summer up and down the world, making it endless. From the beautiful long days in the English countryside, to the tropical beach sunsets in Thailand, to the lush summer landscapes of New Zealand, and to the stunning sunrises over the Hawaiian mountains – the possibilities!
In this collection, I combined our classic knits with a variety of cotton and jersey fabrics to design flowing summer dresses and skirts, as well as playful outfits for both boys and girls. The collection also includes “couture” requests from my daughters: Eden for a “beautiful white dress”, Zoe for a “summer dress with flowers”, and Elise for a “princess tutu dress”. Designing together with my daughters was both fun and exhausting (little girls know exactly what they like!).
In addition to the classic eden & zoe palette of grey, pink and white, we also have a light purple for girls (due to popular demand) and a classic navy blue for boys. These spring/summer pieces are made from 100% cotton for comfort and versatility. Our sizing runs from newborn up to size 12.
Lastly, I hope that your little ones love this collection as much as mine do. They are the reason for what we do.
PHOTO SHOOT - EDEN & ZOE X RORY EARNSHAW
Rory Earnshaw was our photographer for this shoot. San Francisco Bay provided the picturesque backdrop and I think the photos speak for themselves. Rory did an amazing job of capturing our models and the essence of summer, whilst making it seem so effortless at the same time.
Cashmere is like no other. Here are some of the reasons why:Ideal for children
Cashmere is long-lasting and actually becomes softer with age. The more you wear a cashmere garment, the more comfortable it becomes. It makes the perfect hand-me-down which can be shared with other little ones.
Our cashmere is sourced from the native goats of the Mongolian highlands. We use cashmere yarns made from the fine undercoat fibers of the cashmere goats. These fibers are collected by combing or shearing the goat during each molting season. After collection, the long fibers are carefully hand picked and washed before being spun into yarns to produce high quality knitwear.
