kleine fabriek a short report :: part 1


Already two weeks ago I visited the kleine fabriek, the best trade-fair for kids fashion and accessories in the Netherlands. Luckily not only Dutch brands were present also international labels like Rosie Flo's colouring books and Dwell studio were there. Engel certainly had an eye-catching stand. The colorful garlands and beautiful new paper mobiles certainly draw me to their booth.


The new collection by kidscase is just Awesome! I really Loved everything, beautiful colors and the materials used are so fine, delicate and perfect for little children. I have written before about kidscase here on BKids but it was nice meeting the owner/founder of kidscase Jacqueline van Nieuwkerk in person this time.




Unfortunately, when I arrived at the stand from broer&zus, Roos, the owner had just left. I was really hopeing to meeting her, becasue we have had such nice contact over email during the last couple of years and had heard that she is just a very warm and friendly person. Perhaps you remember her Fashion Story here on BKids… hopefully we meet next time.



Part 2 of my report later today …

    he wat fijn dat je het leuk hebt gehad op de KF! dit jaar ben ik niet meer geweest vind het niet zo vernieuwend meer (raar dat niemand dat hardop zegt hoor het toch wel meer om me heen ;-( ). Je hebt dingen vaak toch al online gezien. Hoop binnenkort naar Parijs of Londen te gaan in de hoop daar veel inspiratie te vinden!

    Hi Maaike, the fun part for me visiting this fair is the fact that what I have seen online only so far I now can see and feel for real and of course that fact that I can meet the people behind the labels in person. I know it is extremely hard for Fairs to be refreshing especially with all the blogs, pinterest etc. but I believe it is extremely important fairs like de kleine fabriek are there.
