Our Story

Little Fig is a family business in Gloucestershire. All of our pieces are handmade by us with love and care.

We use natural fibres wherever possible and baby friendly fabrics - our very own Little Fig tries our sample piece before we make up the full range. 

 

Here at Little Fig we love traditional baby clothing, so create practical pieces that retain a traditional style. Sustainable fashion is important to us so we ignore 'fast fashion' trends, opting for timeless, long-lasting clothing.

How We Work

Every step of the process stays right here with us, from pattern drafting, sourcing beautiful, natural fabrics and yarns, to making, testing and finishing each piece by hand. 

We design and create collections for each season, in limited quantities and also maintain a made to order service. Working in this way allows us to minimise waste, keep our designs up to date and create exciting new design combinations from our customers ideas and inspiration.

Who We Are

Little Fig was created when our own 'Little Fig' was born. After years of making clothes for family and friends we decided the time had come to share our love of creating beautiful baby clothes and accessories.

 

Michelle has been making baby clothes for over 25 years, alongside her previous careers in retail, childcare and teaching. She designs her own knitwear, and has learned how to write her own knitting patterns.

 

Charis is a Fashion Design graduate, and knew very early on in her studies, that she wanted to use her skills in the world of childrenswear. She also designs her own clothing, and creates her own sewing patterns to make our pieces.

 

We wanted our clothing to be suitable for every day wear, as well as being perfect for a special occasion. 

 

With our very own Little Fig always ready to show us and tell us what makes for great baby and childrenswear, and with a great community around us, supporting our new ideas and venture, Little Fig has now become our full time world.
