How to choose the right size
Start by measuring your child and choosing the appropriate size according to height, use the size chart to double check size and your good to go. Sizes 1, 2, 3 and 4 are not strictly related to age. Each size should fit your child (if proportionate to our chart) for about 2-1.5 years. It’s great to start dressing your kids in leather just as they are learning to crawl the loose cut will accommodate nappies – and simply roll-up the legs when baby is tiny and unroll as needs be. Our sleeveless design leaves plenty of room for growth. Braces allow for generous, elasticised waist.
Play is Work garments are cut to grow with your child.
When in doubt chose the size up and your child will get plenty of wear from it.

About my leather
How do I care for my leather?
Caring for your leather is easy, read our care guide for more information.
To wash or not to wash?
Care is easy. Just follow our care instructions and you’ll find your garment will only get better and better with time. Each garment comes with a little care booklet made especially for you to keep and make care even easier, be sure to pass this on with your garment.
Who makes your garments?
Our leather is tanned by one of the oldest, finest tanneries in Italy. We pass each hide on to our trusted leather crafts workshop in East London. The workshop has been running for two generations and the team has been through all the dramas of recent downsizing in the industry and the shift of much of England's leather manufacturing to India and China. Now they are back and growing as we grow. Working with local craftspeople means we are constantly in and out of the workshop, maintaining a close relationship with our manufacturing partners who understand our product and style.
Why are all your garments made out of leather?
Because leather works! Read our 'Leather' page to see why.
