RaspberryPlum is a luxury organic designer children’s fashion brand based in London. The entire collection is sourced and manufactured in Europe and the highest level of craftsmanship and quality of manufacture is used for the collection.
Its founder, Aleksandra Stasic is a graduate from London’s prestigious Royal College of Art. She worked for numerous high profile companies before starting her own brand. Having seen and experienced the ways of mass manufacture, Aleksandra set out to create a brand which embraces a different set of values. Her aim was to create a brand which creates gorgeous, unique clothes for children which are sustainably made, long lasting and manufactured by small European manufacturers. It is essential that each member of the team is treated and paid fairly, and respected for their contribution to the brand. It was not enough to make ‘cute’ clothes. There needed to be more.
The collection is manufactured in Serbia as it is RaspberryPlums aim to help re-establish and promote a once thriving apparel industry, which has suffered greatly as a result of political turmoil in the region over the two decades.
At RaspberryPlum ecological and environmental issues are very important. They try to avoid excess packaging and all of it is made from recycled materials. They also aim to produce all of their products within Europe in order to maintain a low carbon footprint.
It is very important to the brand to give back to the community, therefore for the ss16 season, RaspberryPlum started working with a non-profit organisation in Serbia, who’s aim is to gather dying traditional, local crafts. They pass on their knowledge to the community through lectures and craft therapy in hospitals and other institutions. This organisation produced the pompoms on the socks for the Spring/Summer 16 collection. RaspberryPlum is planning to continue their work with such organisations and also work closely with charities.
The RaspberryPlum collections just keep getting better and better and here at Little Flea, we feel it is a brand to watch.
