BRAND: POCO NIDO

Poco Nido make fun, happy and colourful kids clothes and shoes. Founded by footwear designer and mother of two, who after she was unable to find any shoes for her children that she loved decide to design her own.

My kids have some Poco Nido short wellies and they are great - super useful, easy for them to slip on and because they are short are easy for them to move around in.

Poco Nido specialise in fun, simple, functional clothes, shoes and accessories that have been made in natural materials. Here is some more information on the brand and what we should buy from them:

NAME OF BRAND/COMPANY: Poco Nido 

DATE IT WAS FOUNDED: August 2011

BY WHOM IT WAS FOUNDED: Catherine Lobley, a mother of two and footwear designer. 

WHY WAS IT CREATED: Poco Nido’s journey began when Catherine was shopping for shoes for her own children. Tired of the identikit leather pull ons available, Catherine decided to go in search of an alternative. When this alternative was nowhere to be found, she did what any shoe designer would do – she made it herself. And the Mini Shoe was born. Five years later the Poco Nido range has grown to include shoes, garments and accessories, both for babies and children up to the age of 6. 

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND: Poco Nido doesn’t buy into conventional or commercial, we like quirky and different.  We don’t follow trends, what you see comes straight out of our heads. Our products are the result of years of overseas travel, countless children’s stories, a love of pattern, symmetry, a hatred of over packaging, a passion for up-cycling and frustration with fastenings.

WHAT WE SHOULD BUY FROM YOU: For babies you should most certainly buy a pair of our best selling Mini Shoes. They’re available in a whole host of prints, or you can keep it simple with a plain Mini Shoe teamed with our leggings in your favourite print. Our accessories, such as bibs, blankets and bonnets make perfect gifts. We recommend that you mix and match from your favourite items, although gift bundles are available if you love a specific print. 

For toddlers and young children we recommend our wellies. Perfect for splashing in puddles, they’re made from 100% rubber and are ankle height for increased maneuverability and self-dressing. Our Roary the Lion and Flamingo prints are hot for SS16. 

Finally, for children (up to age 6) you can dress them from head to toe in Poco Nido. Mix and match our vests with either leggings or shorts in your favourite prints for those hot summer days we’re hoping for. Even better pair them with our Ludwig the Owl pumps for an enviable burst of colour!
