New Brand Oeuf NYC at Desmond Elephant August 07 2015

We’re huge fans of Brooklyn-based label Oeuf NYC, pronounced UH-F, meaning egg in French and delighted to announce that we are welcoming it as a new brand at Desmond Elephant.  

Created in 2002 by Sophie Demenge and Michael Ryan, a French/American husband and wife team when their first child was born and they felt the market was in need of children's furniture with quality, practicality and function - packaged in beautiful designs. They then started designing children's clothes with their unique beautiful knitted designs.  

Their incredibly luxurious Fair Trade alpaca wool used in their knits comes from Bolivian farmers who practice sustainable farming with each knit hand knitted by a cooperative of 25 women in Bolivia who spin the wool into yarn, colour the wool using low-impact and metal-free dyes, and knit the yarn into amazing pieces. Alpaca wool is super soft and lanolin free making it a great hypoallergenic fibre for kids. 

Check out the sweetest animal hoodies & hats and adorable angel sweater as well as this apple cushion.  A brand that both parents and kids will adore, right?
