The Bunting Tree Review: I have often written about how I really struggle to find clothing for the boys which is bright and colourful. A lot of high street shops stock the standard blue, grey, brown and khaki. As they get older I know they will naturally gravitate towards these colours so while they are young I want to dress them in bright and colourful clothing. This is leading me to move away from the high street to small independent retailers I have found on Instagram or Etsy. One such company is The Bunting Tree.
Emma the brain power and designer behind the brand, brought her clothing to market for a reason I can relate to. Eczema. I struggled with Monkey who has terrible skin to find good quality organic cotton when he was small. Once you hit a certain age high street retailers stop producing 100% cotton and move to a poly mix. This use to play havoc with his skin even now he is still susceptible to a flare, so I am very pleased to hear that The Bunting Tree will be making larger sizes (up to age 7) in the coming weeks.
Emma’s clothes are designed in the UK and produced ethically in India to enabling her to design the prints herself. And I am sure you will agree they are beautiful.
I really can’t decide which design I prefer I love them both in equal measure. Available in sizes 0-3 months to 5 years in both long and short sleeved options. Sizes up to and including 18-24 months come with two poppers on the collar. As Kipper is ridiculously broad on the shoulder we opted to size up to 12-18 months and I am glad we did as they are not as large on him as I would have thought. But then I already struggle to get him in a lot of the 9-12 months tops we have already and these are designed to be slim fit. They are made from the softest 100% organic cotton and I love the contrasting edging. Monkey was most put out when he realised they were for Kipper!
Things I love:
- First off it has to be the prints, they are so different and I love that they are gender neutral. I didn’t realise but the prints are designed by using painted tissue paper. Which gives that almost water colour effect
- Quality, nothing is spared on these tops. The poppers are well aligned and easy to fasten. The contrasting edging is straight and well sewn. The fabric is thick and soft and you can not see the vests underneath. Oh and of course the 100% organic cotton.
- The stretch in the fabric allows Kipper to get up to his usual antics without being restricted in any way. Yes the printing is such good quality that you do not loose the colour in the stretch.
- I have washed each a couple of times and each top is still as bright as it was when we first received it. Washing well they have not shrunk and have kept their shape.
- The garments are well priced at £18 for a short sleeved Tee and £20 for a long sleeved top.
- I like to support mumpreneurs and small British businesses where ever possible.
