Stylish Kids: Tea Pony

I'm absolutely besotted with the Tea Pony children's label; the use of limited edition vintage fabric, the sweet designs, and the dreamy nostalgic state they put me in. How adorable is this collectable dress - a collaboration between Mandy Sutcliffe from Belle & Boo and Tea Pony.

Tea Pony was created by Esa West and Luke Cooper in Byron Bay after the birth of their daughter Coco in 2007. The clothing styles have comfort in mind (breathable cotton, generous fit, no tight elastics or scratchy tags) and are designed and produced in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

You can find Tea Pony clothing at stockists around the country, and find more about the label at the Tea Pony Website and Blog.

You can find more Australian children's clothing labels at Australian Designer Baby Clothes. And shop online for kids fashion from great stores in the Australian Online Kids and Baby Store Directory.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Just beautiful and so nostalgic. Wonderful find Steph.

    Once again though, a company that makes clothes for girls and nothing for boys. I wish there was more out there like this for boys.

  2. Hi Lis - so glad you like this find too. I'm making it a personal mission to find fantastic boys' clothes. Here are some Aussie labels that do lovely stuff for the lads:
    Wasabi Kids
    Red Chalk
    Anna & Sally (and they have an online UK store)
    Oobi Baby

    Most of these use more modern fabrics, so if anyone knows of a label using vintage fabric for boys, please let me know.

  3. oohhh Thank you so much for the lovely post, Kate and I LOVE Teapony's clothes, she was an absolute pleasure to work with

  4. You are so welcome Mandy, Belle & Boo is a delight and I have had so much incredible feedback about this dress!


Your comments make my day :)
