Our Workshop

In 1994 Rachel set up an atelier with local seamstresses and pattern-cutters, this was the beginning of her childrenswear business

This workshop uses traditional techniques, and has now been making samples & special orders, and cutting and grading patterns, for over twenty years

Rachel Riley has many years experience in designing, creating and making childrens clothes

In 1997 she bought the machinery from a local workshop making baby shoes & kid leather slippers. She had her machinists trained in the techiques of making these classic styles, with shoe lasts originating from the 1930’s

These are still made in the traditional way, stitched on the outside, much like assembling a garment, hand-turned & heated on child-sized shoe forms.These range from layette size 16 which fits a baby of one month to size 40 for a teenager for a special occasion
