Mamas and papas, get excited. We’ve found a brand that addresses girls’ clothing with both flare and a conscience. Mini Bili, part of House of Bilimoria, works exclusively with reclaimed, vintage cloth to create beautiful ethical girls’ clothes with a lifetime guarantee.
Every garment is meticulously handcrafted in England with exquisite attention to detail. Shilpa Bilimoria, the brand’s founder, works with a dedicated team from her studio in West London using traditional craftsmanship techniques lovingly inherited from generations of tailoring expertise. Her ethical girls’ clothes are properly constructed with longevity and durability at their core. Details like double turned hems, fused button stands and reinforced necklines work together to ensure that these garments will maintain their structural integrity for years to come. Mini Bili unflinchingly offers a lifetime guarantee on the entire collection; should there ever be an issue, the brand will happily repair the garment free of charge.
All materials (including trims and hardware) have been rescued and reincarnated. The brand sources end of the line cloth from Savile Row tailors and re-purposes vintage furnishing fabrics, which brings inherent durability as well as timelessness to the collection.
Mini Bili offers a focused selection of shapes in a variety of different prints. Look out for party dresses, simple shifts, lightweight pants and frilled shorts. Not forgetting the tiny ones – check out the stunning romper suits (some available with matching headbands) which are perfect for babies and toddlers to happily wriggle and scamper around in. If you’re in the market for something more understated, fear not; Mini Bili also offers their styles in darker, solid colours too (get in touch for more information on custom orders).
Mini Bili promotes a circular approach to their collections. If customers ever tire of the clothes, they’re invited to return the pieces to be given new life. Customers will receive a 30% discount off their next purchase for each piece they return. We wholeheartedly support this ethical approach to girls’ clothes – a category that too often promotes wasteful, short-term, disposable shopping.
