Our Story

Where it began…

Vintage Kit is a lifestyle brand featuring children’s clothes, bedding, wallpaper and lampshades all created using hand-drawn prints of original characters – and through our co-brand collection with Disney some of the best loved cartoon characters ever created.

Vintage Kit launched over ten years ago with a boutique vintage inspired collection designed to dress children beautifully, but in a way they could still play freely. Our clothes are made from fabrics that are soft, cuddly and comfortable but also highly creative and individual for the little adventurers in our lives.

Vintage Kit’s roots are drawn from an eclectic mix of British style influences, so we work closely with a small group of talented seamstresses to produce the ranges and aim to ensure that all printing and manufacturing is done in the UK – very important for such a quintessentially British brand.

Our Collections

Our collections are handmade and/or hand finished in our Welsh Studios and our manufacturer in Strawberry Fields in London. Our hand drawn fabrics are printed in the UK using natural or low impact dyes.

Founder and designer Katherine Trigg has a background in Art, Textiles and Fashion. Her collections are designed and made with integrity – balancing delicate vintage nostalgia with modern and wearable shapes. This original ethos continues to be the core of her design process.

We hope you enjoy discovering the Vintage Kit collections.
