It all started with some retail therapy…
Always finding an excuse for some retail therapy, I am particularly obsessed with vintage and antique pieces that can still be used, look beautiful on display or can be added to a collection.
I quickly got to a stage where I had too many vintage pieces without enough room in my home for them all, so decided to pass the pieces onto other vintage lovers. This was the beginning of blue daisy wares.
Another obsession of mine is anything to do with baby. I am a Mother to one gorgeous little girl Izzy, and I can’t seem to walk past a baby store without having a browse for her next outfit. Only wanting to dress her in breathable and baby friendly material but also being on trend, I found that most brands for baby clothing of good quality are remarkably over priced.
In 2012 my husband was offered an assignment to work in Manila, in the Philippines. We took this opportunity and while there I found it challenging to find that perfect next outfit. Frustrated one day, a friend recommended a reliable and creative seamstress from a distant province who may be able to make something for me if I was able to source the fabric and a design. I hunted for some material I would dress Izzy in, put together a design and sent it off. That first piece came back and it was beautiful, and the quality of work was fantastic.
I continued doing this for a few more outfits and fell in love with the process of producing children’s wear. We discussed the idea of creating a larger number of pieces and Elizabeth was so excited to join the blue daisy team as the income enabled her to provide a better life for herself and her family in a location otherwise challenging to find work. Our garments have proven so popular and so we now have three seamstresses working on the gorgeous garments that create blue daisy wares and we are still growing!
With our small but enthusiastic team we are able to offer you beautiful quality garments and products that are all handmade with great care. Enjoy!
