Crabbkins. Creating the perfect magical space for your precious baby and child.
Crabbkins is an independent British company, founded on passion and creativity, offering a variety of unique and high quality clothing and interiors.
Faced with the problem of trying to find individual and tasteful nursery bedding and interiors whilst pregnant with her first child, Katie stumbled upon an unexpected solution: her grandmother’s old sewing machine. With an arm full of fabric and a head full of ideas Katie set about designing and hand stitching items to create a beautiful and bespoke nursery. The finishing touch, created by a hand drawn Little Swan, influenced by memories of fairy tale characters from her childhood, was framed to hang above the cot to watch over her precious little prince or princess.
Her Little Prince, Harry Crabb, arrived and inspired Katie to transform her hand drawn image into a hand painted version to be printed onto exquisite linen fabric; and so The Crabbkins Little Swan collection was born.
A Little Princess, Millicent Crabb, soon followed, completing the family and allowing Katie to add to her collection by designing a range of beautiful new born essentials and clothing all featuring the original Little Swan.
In a world of the mass produced, Crabbkins is fastidious about offering beautiful, traditional and unique pieces. As with our own children, we believe that every child deserves the best and we have dedicated our designs to offer timeless luxury to be treasured and enjoyed, sourcing only the finest fabrics. Our clothing range has been created using the highest quality Peruvian Pima Cotton, unrivalled for its soft touch, making it a perfect choice for the delicate skin of a new born baby. This luxurious cotton allows a baby’s skin to breathe naturally, essential for regulating and maintaining their temperature. Whilst our Pima cotton is silky to the touch, the longer length of its fibres result in a more durable fabric, allowing it to retain its special qualities wash after wash; luxurious but practical, meeting the needs of every new born.
We hope that the Crabbkins collection can weave its magical threads into the lives of others to give them the comfort it provided for Harry and Millicent in their precious early years, and the joy it continuous to deliver as they grow up and inspire new designs.
