baby&taylor is a Parisian brand of timeless knitwear essentials using only natural materials. They have a durable, responsible and ethical approach with hand-knitted clothes from Romania, GOTS certified knit from India and original Cashmere procurement from inner Mongolia.
The family craft label was founded in Paris in 1978 by Marie-Sophie Ragueneau, who graduated from Paris Fashion School and was a mother of 3. Originally set out to design classic French children's wear fit for both modern Paris and countryside weekends, baby&taylor remains true to the brand ethos; exclusively natural with no synthetic, cashmere especially with wool, cotton and silk used as well.
The 2nd generation, Valerie Toyomura-Provot, swears by knit. Valerie has studied knitting technics alongside a Japanese creator before spending time in inner-Mongolia, the backyard of the cashmere’s production. Valerie has revamped some of baby&taylor iconic designs with timeless styles, contemporary colours and influence.
Quality fabrics, selection of yarns and innovative mesh techniques allow baby&taylor to offer modern and comfortable baby and child collections, made with care.
The collection is entirely designed and developed in the Parisian workshop, from drawings to paper pattern including prototyping. Fabrics are French and Italian whilst Cashmere is knitted in 2 different workshops in inner- Mongolia which are regularly visited.
The high-end collections are made from luxurious natural fibers with impeccable craftsmanship.
The magic starts with baby&taylor raw cashmere yarns which come from Mongolia, the Alashan region. The fiber is gathered by hand when the indigenous breed of goat sheds its winter coat in early spring, sourced from the best herds in the region and in respect of natural resources. The methods of selecting the best fibers, perfected for generations, allow baby&taylor to achieve an exceptional mesh by its quality and softness.
baby&taylor cashmere embodies tenderness, exclusive & refined, versatile and sophisticated. Cashmere yarn likes water which means that it washes well and has tremendous lasting power. baby&taylor cashmere is developed for a long and much-loved life, being passed from elder to younger, from generation to generation as a timeless item.
Cashmere is said to be thermoregulatory, it has the property of putting itself at body temperature.
baby&taylor designs with the detailed eye of the artisan, the care of a craftsman and always, with the loving touch and care of a mum.
