Childrens school satchel ……………………

What do you think of this new school satchel that we just added tot he French Blossom boutique ?  Designed in France by Linna Morata and illustrated by Shinzi Katoh, this satchel is made with laminated cotton and is therefore waterproof. It can be carried in a number of ways, by the top handle, the shoulder strap or as a back pack with the two back straps.  We stock a variety of childrens school satchels at the boutique.  Some like this one are made with laminated cotton, others from vinyl and some have been designed with canvas.  Take a look at this satchel and others right here – Childrens school satchels

Handmade mobiles

We have just received the new collection of handmade mobiles from designer Rose Minusule.  Handmade in her small workshop just outside Paris, each childrens mobile is unique and can take up to 6 hours to make.  These mobiles make a truly original gift idea for babies or young children and they are a really wonderful piece of room decoration.  For this new collection the detailing is refined, the colours are soft pastels and each piece is so delicate and poetic.
Above is the childrens mobile called ‘ A day like no other’.  The little wolf in the mobile has her party hat on, her best dress, covered in a pretty flower pattern and she is carrying brightly coloured balloons.  Its her birthday.  This is a really beautiful childrens room mobile !
