Hello and welcome to Peps & Pooks!
We hope you like what you see…
Peps & Pooks is a home for modern, colourful clothes for babies and toddlers aged 0-4 years was founded by me, Laura, when I was on maternity leave with my daughter Eva (aka Peppercorn, aka the Peps in Peps & Pooks).
Once she was born I decided that I wanted a change of path away from my previous full time 9-5, to allow myself the flexibility to spend more time with Eva as she grows. With a background in Fashion and Online Marketing, and a new found love of clothing for little people, my own clothing website seemed like a natural choice, and so Peps & Pooks was born.
First up, “What on earth is a “Peps”? Or a “Pooks” for that matter?!”
Great question, and one that I get asked pretty much every time I mention the name of my company. Basically they are the nicknames myself and my sister-in-law gave our babies while we were pregnant.
“Peps” being short for Peppercorn…Once we found out we were having a baby, my husband and I spent a couple of weeks referring to the tiny bean as whatever my pregnancy app said it was the same size as, and when we got to Peppercorn it just kind of stuck…for the whole 9 months and still now even though she’s nearly 18 months old! “Pooks” being short for Pookie, although I have no idea what my brother and sister-in-law were thinking when they came up with that one! ????
Stepping away from the typical blues and pinks of the high street, we love bold prints, bright colours and clothes which are fun…
I remember before my daughter was born, repeatedly telling friends “Please, no pink!”, and that’s something I keep in mind when selecting new items for the website. The majority of our range is unisex and all of the kids clothes we stock have been hand chosen because of their bold colours and unique designs.
My vision for Peps & Pooks is that it becomes a home for great quality, well designed clothes for babies and toddlers. A place where mamas, papas, parents to be, grandparents and friends can shop for the little people in their lives to find unique, wearable and great quality clothes created by small brands taking pride in the items they produce.
