Kids: Waddler

Born out of adventure, Waddler create beautiful Fair Trade children's knitwear produced in Bolivia.

When designer Marina Scrymgeour and Philip Thompson's little boy was just a year old, they left their London life behind and moved to South America. Travelling far and wide across the continent, they found themselves drawn toward the Andean region that lies between Argentina, Peru and Bolivia.

"Our son spent his first years picking avocadoes in a tropical garden, riding bareback with gauchos and dining on the Andean speciality: roast guinea pig. He saw the forests come alive with Ceibo blossom in the winter, watched fireflies light up his bedroom in spring and clapped his hands at alligators lazing in the hot summer sun." Waddler's clothes are inspired by the magic of this life.

Now based in Fife, Scotland, the couple maintain their links to Bolivia by visiting regularly and working closely with the local farmers and knitters. Their clothes are made of baby soft alpaca and come in adorable styles including cute romper suits, pierrot jumpers and knitted bombacho pants. They are the perfect clothes for having an adventure in.
