About - FW13
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 wool knitwear was too “itchy”, so I started looking into cashmere for them. Having found the combination of quality and style in children’s knits elusive, I decided to create the clothes myself.
My aim is to design cashmere 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 made from pure cashmere, created using a hand-operated knitting machine and finished by hand.
eden & zoe knitwear is made to be worn, enjoyed and shared.
Ballet dance is my inspiration for this current collection. Eden and Zoe both take ballet classes and they absolutely love wearing their ballet outfits. They would wear them all day if they could! So I started thinking about the functionality and design of dancewear: how it enables you to express yourself and be comfortable at the same time. Perfect attributes for children’s wear.
My designs are influenced by the flowing silhouettes of ballet wear and presented in the classic palettes of pink, white and gray. I have used delicate pointelle knits, luxurious cable patterns and graduated color stripes in a variety of ways. The pieces are contemporary and playful, and are made from 100% pure cashmere yarns to keep your little one comfortable and warm.
I hope this collection will inspire your child to express herself in her own unique way and make her feel truly loved.
Cashmere is like no other. Here are some of the reasons why:Ideal for children
It is natural, soft and breathable. Cashmere knitwear is lightweight and the ultimate in comfort and warmth. You can wear cashmere in all climates because it has a high moisture content, which allows its insulation properties to change with the relative humidity in the air.
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.
