about poème & poésie

elegant bespoke babywear

Inspired by cherished family heirlooms, poème & poésie is a line of elegant handmade babywear that blends loving craftsmanship and a graceful, modern aesthetic.

With classic details and contemporary silhouettes, poème & poésie babywear is designed to be worn, treasured and handed down from one child to the next. Each piece is rendered in fine, earth-friendly materials like soft, breathable organic cotton and finished with bespoke details including hand-stitched embroidery, artisan lace and mother-of-pearl buttons. Bloomers, shirts, gowns, blankets and swaddling cloths are a few of the signature pieces in the collection.

True to its family roots, the line is made in Ceylon with a focus on reviving and preserving the distinctive art of fine handmade babywear. Lace embellishments are custom designed and handmade by skilled artisans using centuries old lace making techniques. Employment is geared towards providing opportunities to disadvantaged women allowing them the means to be self-sufficient.

poème & poésie pieces are more than just baby clothes–they’re stylish keepsakes you’ll feel good about owning and can lovingly pass on to your children and theirs.
