Designed by German designer based in Madrid, Kristina Laux, the collection features cheerful and bright prints that reminds us all the fun summer has in stored for us! They are designed to facilitate free movement and imaginations... and we are sure that your little ones will have tons of fun running around in them!

Kids in sunglasses .. killer cuteness.. The Ultra Violet Kids are laid back and cool in their mixed prints. Just another label we are getting totally on board with!

A soft vintage feel is what we get from looking at kids label Rylee and Cru. Founded by illustrator, Kelli Murray, each of the prints are hand illustrated or painted with a subtle mix of pretty pastel colours and line art. We love their collection of animal prints garments, like this bunny onesie with cute bunny prints that looked like they hopped right out of a childhood storybook!

Chloe Fleury is a prop stylist and illustrator and the paper things this lady can make is just mind-blowing! The amount of detail and precision.. and how it differs from our own paper art with glue everywhere by the end of the crafting session.. She's worked with some of the biggest brands and now we can try our hand at making our own paper bunnies.

The Make History family has officially welcomed a new member .. The Growth Chart! We've already seen the Growth Chart making it's way round the world of instagram, popping up on our feed several times in a day.. but we would like to officially introduce it to you!
The Growth Chart is so close to Bloesem because we've seen our favourite product designer, marketing specialist and all round favourite person, Anouk van der El, working hard on it for awhile now and we were also honored to do the styling and photography for the Growth Chart.
We're sure you are already too familiar with the Time Capsules and the Little Quote Jar, both great products that fly off the shelf in the Bloesem shop.. We've just stocked the shop with Growth Charts and we're already running low. It's a great design and functional piece that both parents and children can enjoy. We've seen so many growth charts with overly childish designs that do not go with the room decor (you know the ones) but this one is just the right amount of playful and cool.
So go ahead and add this cool graphic Growth Chart to your child's room .. mark their growth and take it with you when you move.. it comes flatpacked and can be kept as a nice momento once the little ones have outgrown the chart.
We've placed one up on the wall in the Bloesem shop and it's lovely to see that kids are naturally drawn to it asking their parents to tell them how tall they are.. their favourite part is when we mark down their height and write their name beside it .. so wonderful to see their little faces light up!
The Growth Chart is a collaboration between Anouk van der El of Make History and blogger Erin Loechner (she writes Design for Mankind ) .. having met for the first time in Singapore while Erin was here to teach here Bloesem Classes on social media and blogging. Great to see Bloesem Class connecting creatives from all over the world.
Start 2015 with the Growth Chart and create memories by tracking your child's growth.. I always remember marking my height as a child as a very exciting time!

From the amazing talents Tove Johansson, her latest print collection ' Jungle ' already found in a fan in Bloesem. In collaboration with photographer Caroline Gomez who we have already adored for awhile now ( we stock her travel guide books in the Bloesem store) the new collection looks amazing! And so does her other projects.. pattern is definitely her forte.
