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 them back to 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.
Even better the 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. When you buy Oeuf knits, you transform the lives of Bolivian women and their families.
