As mentioned in the previous blog, teamwork and collaboration is important. It's why Totes Caribbean Partners have been added to the store.
Let me take a moment to introduce you to the first of our partners:
Baa Baa Love
Here's what Founder, Claire McDonald has to say about her brand.
"Every time I wanted to purchase a baby product for my daughter or as a gift for a new baby, I struggled to find a product that represented me as a Black person from a Caribbean background."
Why Baa Baa?
Baa Baa is a play on words of the nickname I gave to my daughter when she was a baby, “Babba”.
It describes the sound a sheep makes and you will know it from the nursery rhyme – ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’.
Black sheep was a term given to anyone who was different from the rest of the flock of sheep i.e. “black sheep of the family”. I certainly have memories of attending a predominantly white school as a child and having my fellow peers emphasise “black sheep” in my face during singing assembly.
