Best Years off to Bangladesh!

Do you have snow forecast for your region this week? Expecting temperatures to dip below freezing? How would you like to go somewhere nice and warm instead? Interested? Where would you like to go?

I bet Bangladesh isn't the place you have in mind!

Next week, while the UK freezes, we ( the directors of Best Years) will travel to the South Asian country to meet the creators of our gorgeous Pebble range.

Made by workers co-operatives which have been set up in rural communities, our cotton crochet toys, blankets and accessories are proof that you can produce beautiful collections at affordable prices and provide fairly paid employment.

Watch this space as we will take pictures and blog about our trip. You will also discover some of our new designs, many of which will be exclusively launched at Bubble London on 30 & 31 January!

Wild Dreams



A few years ago, Jan von Holleben started turning his childhood dreams into photographs.
Working with children from his local neighbourhood in Southwest Germany, Dreams of Flying, Journey to Everywhere and Mystery of Monsters have been exhibited internationally.


Some of his best shots are now available as posters, postcards and calendars. You know what to get me for Christmas!

Long time ...

Julia Lange and her range of vibrant crocheted items were part of the first Bubble London in January 2008.
Almost three years later, Teenytini is now sold in selected stores throughout Europe, Asia and America.

Still designed in London and ethically manufactured, the new collection is punctuated with pop stitching and delightful buttons, giving each item a strong, fun and individual character.

The ability to change what is in front of you into something surreal, ethereal and believable.

Can you recall the first shoot you did with children?
Yes, I shot my daughter for for my wife's brand, Baby Bean Vintage Day Wear.

Finally, what’s your favourite thing to do with your children?
Listen to them.
