Calling all baby Mommas, baby Pappas and people who have to buy a baby shower gift sometime soon, there’s a new go-to baby wear store in town and you don’t even have to leave your couch to shop the collection! Exclusively designed and proudly locally made, Sebastian Baby Wear has officially launched their online store, offering shoppers an exclusive range of baby wear and accessories.
Sebastian Baby Wear was born out of necessity with a dash of creative frustration, says owner Tessa Lakhani. The mom started making baby clothes for her bundle of joy, Sebastian when he was just 2 months old in 2014 and what started out as a hobby is now a fledgling business. “I have loved the whole process of assembling the Sebastian Baby Wear range. All my designs and patterns have been lovingly drawn up, crafted, and my son has been the official cuteness tester,” Says Tessa.
Personally designed by Tessa and locally manufactured in Woodstock and Athlone, Sebastian Baby Wear prides itself on its authentic South African manufacturing process from conceptualization to final garment delivery, creating jobs and opportunities for local seamstresses and pattern makers around the Cape who have been affected by job losses in in the industry over the past decade, even though they are highly skilled.
But she’s not just creating jobs, because the clothes are manufactured right here in sunny SA they can be sold at a much more accessible price point! Just check out the picture above! We love the super cute 3/4 Khaki Cargo Style Pants (with comfortable elasticated waist, for easy dressing and faux side pockets) at just R45 and the Jersey Knit Navy Short Sleeve Onesie (with banded crewneck, envelope neckline in contrast trim, snaps at inseam for easy dressing and nappy changes) at just R 85!
