Instagram, Pinterest and Etsy are amazing places to find new talent and designers. Once you start looking you find many of these gorgeous labels have been set up and are run my mums busy juggling work, family and managing a new business. Here at minis AND MORE… we love discovering new brands and Button and Blue who we are featuring today is a perfect example of a mum simply “going for it” and creating beautiful pieces for little ones to wear.
Amy is the name/mum behind Button and Blue and lives in Brighton. As a mum of two girls, she, like so many of us, found the whole “nine to five” style of working did not fit in easily with family life. She therefore decided to take her love of knitting to a more professional level, and after buying a vintage knitting machine last year, set up Button and Blue.
Amy is a true creative; from designing her pieces to sourcing the yarns to the first sample and finishing with products she puts into her shop, she does it all.
The collections in Button and Blue feature natural fibres, such as British wool and 100% merino. Often the inspiration for Amy’s pieces start with the wool she’s found in her local yarn shop which champions ethically minded, British brands. She tries to make her collections current and fun with a minimal design in classic colours…and we feel she succeeds on all these points! Making perfect new baby gifts, Christening outfits or just a lovely addition to your little one’s wardrobe we think Button and Blue has a design which is sure to tempt.
