Love Bee specialises in handmade clothing for trendy little bees. Sizes range from newborn to seven years and are all handmade with love and attention by team bee in our North Wales Studio.
A little bit about me but LoveBee is so much more than me now
My name is Laura, age thirty something and I am a mummy to our gorgeous boys, George who is six and Edward who is two. They are my inspiration and the reason I started this exciting handmade shop venture. Before I had my sons, I studied fashion at University of Central Lancashire and gained a First Class Honours Degree. After I graduated, I went on to study at The London College of Fashion and gained my Masters Degree. Designing and making clothes is all I've ever wanted to do.
Family life soon took over and I married my military husband. We moved to a different place in the country and we had our first gorgeous little boy. I wanted to dress him in soft, unique and age appropriate clothes and I found myself struggling to find the right quality and designs in the UK. I started to search for fabrics and my love and passion for making clothes changed from womenswear to childrenswear.
I felt my career was going to be difficult as we had a future of moving and redeployment. I became completely obsessed with using my skills to create clothes for George and soon everyone we met became obsessed too.
I love gorgeous fun prints and soft movable clothes so little ones can learn and play comfortably. I spend a lot of time choosing the fabrics and prints that I love. Excellent quality is very important to me. Every item in Lovebee is handmade using either 100% organic cotton fabric with interlock knit or 95% organic cotton with 5% elastane organic cotton rib knit.
So that's how we started on a dining room table in military quarters but what and who is Lovebee now.....
Lovebee today is a growing business. My amazing husband Tom joined the business in 2020 and finished his military career. This was a massive turning point for us as a family and a business. We moved home and now have seven amazing members of staff, ourselves Laura and Tom, Kirsty, Lizzie, Katie, Alina and Abi who all make team bee.
We work together from a barn converted studio in North Wales creating every item, from the fabric arriving to being cut, sewn and packed. You can follow your items being made on social media. Try and spot your cuff combination or custom order being packed ready to leave.
From July 2016 to now, Lovebee has the same high quality items being made with so much care and attention. This is British handmade items at the very top. Our next step is Lovebee loves. We are completing our look and offer brands we love and what we have worn for years alongside LoveBee. You can now purchase that all in one place.
Thank you Lovebee xx
