Born in 2016, Karibou has been creating beautifully-made apparel for little darlings aged 0-6 years. Since then the brand has grown to be in stores throughout New Zealand, Australia, North America, and Asia, gaining global recognition in its quality linens and cottons as well as unique signature accessories and childrenswear styles.

Karibou is all about creating magical mother-daughter moments, being playful together, whilst teaching your little darling to develop her own unique style.

Our designs are developed and created by me in our little studio based on the North Shore of Auckland in lush and beautiful New Zealand.

I am constantly inspired to create by my two little darlings Karolina and Jean who were 1 and 3 when I started Karibou. For me the design work is an ongoing process, as is sourcing of quality fabrics and building a community of likeminded mamas is a never-ending mission of mine.

Our focus is on beautiful natural fabrics that are pleasant to the touch and feel wonderful against your child’s skin. Gorgeous colours and unique designs combined with an amazing fabric complete the look of a beautiful garment that can be treasured for generations.

But most of all, our vision is for mums and their girls everywhere to be have fun with fashion and to be more creative, enjoying those special moments between mother and daughter.

Thank you for choosing Karibou! We hope that you love your purchase and are able to treasure your Karibou pieces for generations. We look forward to receiving your review and feedback.

Lots of love, xx
