Welcome to Millésime Baby
'A Modern Take on the Classic Hand Knit'
Our philosophy is that hand knits are 'forever' pieces if cared for correctly, as they will last a lifetime. Intended to be handed down from generation to generation and if lucky enough, be called an heirloom piece. Our current Collection sizing is from newborn through to 4 years.
Known for our simplicity and classic style, our pieces are thoughtfully designed in Melbourne, Australia and hand knitted by our talented artisans via fair trade in South America.
These woman are able to work part time from their homes and provide an income for their families. They are also supported at the knit centre with training, education and necessities such as healthcare. We are so proud of this here at Millésime Baby and also so inspired by their amazing knitting techniques.
The hand knits are then completed back in Australia with the help of local seamstresses.
We believe in ethical fashion, sustainable fashion and also eco-friendly fashion.
The fibres used to knit our range are all natural fibres. The collections are made from 100% Pima Cotton or 100% pure Alpaca, both are the most luxurious and soft fibres. They are of the highest quality and found local to our knitters.
The Millésime Baby Story
Millésime Baby was started in mid 2014 by Fiona, who has been knitting and designing baby knitwear for well over 25 years as a hobby interest and also whilst completing Commerce studies. Encouraged and taught to knit as a child by both her Grandmothers and Mother and then inspired by all of her new nieces and nephews, the passion for knitting just kept continuing to grow into the label it is today.
All knits were previously hand knitted to order by Fiona and are now available as completed, ready to ship items! This is a new and exciting concept for this label.
To see your little loves in our knits is what continues to inspire us and make us grow!
