kleine fabriek a short report :: part 2


Roos from broer&zus shared her stand with French label Emile et Ida. And I was happily surprised by their what I call a 'sweet but cool' collection … and I just have to mention that the women that I met here were definetly the most positive and happy … great energy!



Not only fashion for kids at de kleine fabriek … my favorite publisher from the Netherlands was present too. Claudette and Annemarieke from Snor Publisher gave me this fun Voucher Book for women … do you recognise the illustrations? Yes they are by Sandra Isaksson aka ISAK. A great gift for every Mom!



Last year I received a copy of the Vier&Versier Kalender 2012 and we use it a lot in our home, I was told by Rianne van Essen from Gezinnig that the 2013 version is even going to be better… I now only hope the calendar will soon be available in English too.


A great idea in a beautiful way executed are the Milestone Baby Cards. For every important event in a child's first year a different card beautifully illustrated by Beci Orpin. Just fill in the date and a little note and you will always remember when these special moments took place.

To be honest I had a great time visiting the kleine fabriek. It was my first time and perhaps my expectations were a bit high… I thought it was a bit quite and not very lively. But I believe all the trade fairs nowadays are more quite due to ongoing economic problems many European countries are having. Only one or two brands were new to me and I missed seeing stands for kids decoration and furniture. But I did see a lot of high street fashion wear and jeans … a lot of jeans. I do have to say that the organizers had done a great job welcoming us and would like to thank Sabine Heideveld in particular.

    Hi Irene,

    so nice to read your post about Kleine Fabriek, and I was curious to see if you had noticed our collection at our agent´s stand. It was our first time as well at the fair, and you are right, it was pretty quiet, but some nice highlights. Just wanted to show you our brand Linodi, we are operating from Hamburg, Germany, but I live in Amsterdam (Amstelveen) and we have some first customers here in Holland, and of course hoping to spread the word.
    All the best, keep up your good work, always inspiring! Nina xx

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Kleine Fabriek 2012. Our team was unable to make it over however sounds like it was a bit quiet. Hopefully the excitement will pick up in the future!

    hi Irene,

    I visited Kleine Fabric last two times, but I skipped it this year. I also miss the new brands and designers, and I saw hardly any furniture and accessories for kids. I heard that before, there were small unites for the starters and designer, and they could pay for it. Now mostly big names are at KL, and they take a lot of space, and they can pay for it. Maybe that’s a problem? I don’t know, but it mind be. I hope next year will get better and that Kleine Fabric will give also chance to starters and new designers, which is giving a nice vibe to the fair. All the best. Agata
