Stumbled across a lovely write-up about us on Very British - had no idea they had featured us!
"In order to perform our role of curators of the Best of British, there are some beautiful high profile brands that we just can’t omit due to their standards and quality. Occasionally however, we feel that we’ve really earnt our crust when we unearth a fledgling brand such as Parsnip and Bramble.
One of the youngest brands on VeryBritish.com, Parsnip and Bramble launched in Winter 2013 to cater to the clothing needs of newborns up to little ones aged 3 years old. Their designs incorporate slightly unusual takes on iconic British images, including traditional sailing boat imagery on baby onesies, hot air balloons on bibs as well as double decker buses, red postboxes and Beefeaters – guards of the Tower not gin obviously.
All of Parsnip and Bramble’s products are handmade in England and manufactured from 100% cotton. What’s even more, is that you can contact them with your own bespoke design, and before you can say “where did you get that hat?”, the lovely team will spring into action and start crafting your very own baby clothes."
Manchester Evening News
The Manchester Evening News ran a four-part feature called 'Made In Manchester' in early 2014 focussing on manufacturing businesses based in Manchester.
Parsnip & Bramble were featured in the 'Clothing Industry' section with a photo of yours truly holding up one of our Toadstool onesie vests.
One of our favourite markets to exhibit our babywear at is Altrincham Market in Cheshire. The Sunday markets have regular themes of vintage, farmers, producers and makers with live music and hot food to set the lively atmosphere.
We also experienced our first Real British Christmas Markets here at their 'Tots to Teens' themed markets on Sundays and Twilight Markets on Thursday evenings where the stalls come alive with twinkly fairy lights and the scent of hot chocolate and mulled cider!
Great British Family
I would love to do a UK handmade spotlight on you in the next few weeks. Your baby wear is stunning.
Clarie from the Great British family blog is passionate about showcasing the best Great Britain has to offer families. Featuring stunning photography from some of the best photographers in Great Britain, beautiful handmade items, stylish fashion and interiors for all the family and family friendly holidays/days out.
Great Britain has so much to offer parents and children I thought it was about time someone showcased it all.

No one knows crafting like today’s guest blogger Victoria Henderson from gorgeous independent baby wear company Parsnip & Bramble. Victoria was a happy crafting bunny when we asked her to hop along and cast her expert eye over the show (12th – 14th September 2013) and report back.
I loved being a member of the Press for the day and chatting with stallholders about all things crafty and creative - here's how I got on...
An Oasis In The City
This event is still the hottest I have ever done, plans for wearing my usual 50s style spotty dress were abandoned in favour of a wafty beach dress!
One of my customers on the day, a lovely lady named Cat with two very cute little boys, wrote a blog piece about their family day out and included our Royal Baby onesie vest she had bought for her friend.
