This weekend I came across the cutest baby brand called Donsje (Dutch for fluffy). This Amsterdam-based label produces a wide range of adorable booties for babies and toddlers, from new born to two years old, as well as super sweet and stylish accessories for older children. On-trend and with a nostalgic twist, each product has the cute factor and comes beautifully packaged in a bag dangling a tiny bell, making Donsje the perfect gift.
Donsje was founded by Floor van Oosten Slingeland in 2013. When she couldn’t find the perfect shoe for her baby daughter, Floor decided to make her own. Two boys later, she designs irresistible booties and sandals for both girls and boys and has recently added accessories, including hats and bags, to the Donsje range. Donsje’s signature style reflects Floor’s love of vintage shoes, subtle powder shades and high quality natural leathers and craftsmanship. She is inspired by the beautiful illustrations in the books she reads to her children and by the flowers they pick, the crafts they make and the toys they love. It’s a truly family affair. Little daughter Vosse had the final say on which animals made the cut for Donsje’s bestselling Kapi animal booties and bags. Floor’s sons have also been put to work road testing the durability of Donsje shoes and ensuring they are toddler-proof!
