We are the biggest fans of the Hybrid Harems by Om Baby. We think they are simply the perfect, unisex summer garment for babies and toddlers. Not only do they look great, they also happen to be handmade locally, by mums no less, in Walthamstow!
Alice Aitken is the founder 'mummy' of Om Baby. With a background in print design and trend forecasting she was inspired to start the brand last year, after travelling to India with a baby bump and spotting a gap in the market for attractive babywear that can accommodate a big, cloth nappy bum!
Om Baby's signature yoga harem pants are designed for comfort as well as style, giving babies plenty of 'wriggle room' while making them stand out from the crowd.
Alice loves textiles and uses her trained eye to select her fabrics. She works with beautiful, block printed Kadhi fabric and lightweight meditation scarf textiles from India, as well as fab African wax printed cotton, all in an up-to-date array of print, colour and pattern.
Om Baby's concept links together Alice's three big loves; her daughter (who serves as in-house model, muse and inspiration), textiles and her love of India. She dreams of getting her own textile designs woodblock printed in India and to expand the range.
We personally love the idea of babies and toddlers across the globe leg-kicking and stretching into all kinds of poses, dressed in these fantastic pants and will continue supporting Alice in making that dream become a reality!
Psst... all of the Om Baby items are made up in a limited number, so if you love them get them while you can!
