Our Story

When founder Hannah Polites was pregnant with her first child, Evaliah, she dreamed of collecting the tiny pieces that would forever be connected to the special memories created in them. Frustratingly, she found that the traditional styles she’d always admired were either really expensive or not easily accessible in Australia. Identifying a lack of options, Hannah decided to start creating them herself and for years she sketched and designed on her lounge room floor, usually with a child on her lap. 

Along came another two precious little bundles and the idea of a classic children’s label further expanded in Babyccino Bear- A global online destination, premium gifting service and curated collection of the finest European style heirloom quality garments and accessories, delivering elegance and tradition to families worldwide.

At Babyccino Bear we appreciate that the poetic world of childhood is but a fleeting moment- a precious gift to be cherished and celebrated. In addition to offering the perfect combination of quality, sophisticated designs and memorability, our intention is to preserve innocence whilst instilling a sense of joy and a touch of magic to your child’s special moments. We create beautiful garments to be worn every day and for every occasion both big and small, on all of your little darling’s adventures. Offering sizes from newborn to age 6,
Babyccino Bear strives to offer the best of European fashion and fine Spanish knitwear, constantly growing and expanding on our range.

Inspired by play, designed and refined during nap times and packaged with the help of tiny hands, all items are ethically handmade in small exclusive batches, using traditional craftmanship techniques. As a midwife and mother, it was important to founder, Hannah Polites that in addition to supporting slow fashion, designs are practical, with delicate materials that offer comfort and will stand the test of time. It’s all in the details when it comes to heirloom garments, which is why we pour our heart and soul into our distinctive aesthetic and ensure we include timeless features which have been known and loved for generations.

Our classic silhouettes feature the nostalgic look that never dates, with lace trims, vintage florals, peter pan collars, scallops, handmade pintucks and embroidery. We are continuing the traditions, whilst adding a modern touch so that you will forever be reminded of the innocence and romance of the bygone era. Our Babyccino Bear collections are proudly designed locally in Australia and brought to life by our talented family of skilled artisans, many who are mothers themselves. Each embellishment and fine touch of originality is threaded with love and care, with each beautiful detail carefully considered with your child’s comfort as a priority. Our goal is that you can feel this love and care every time your little love is wearing their Babyccino Bear heirloom.

From the initial spark of an idea through to the process of bringing a garment to life and delivering it to your front door, we are conscious of our impact on the world by ensuring our approach to the creation of every garment has been thoughtfully considered. We believe that together we can create a more sustainable future for our children to grow and play and our planet to thrive. To live our dream in supporting social causes we have partnered with I= Change by pledging $1 from every sale to those most vulnerable, giving back to the community and improving the lives of women and children across the globe.

My hope is that each Babyccino Bear piece acts as a time portal to relive the special memories created in them and that they can be passed down as heirloom keepsakes from generation to generation to be loved and lived in.

Nothing makes us happier than knowing Babyccino Bear has been a part of your story and we thank you for being a part of ours xx
