Largest & greenest selection ever at celebrating kleine fabriek
Dec '09
On January 10th and 11th, the tenth edition of kleine fabriek will take place. An anniversary!

The last five years the organisation has worked hard to achieve growth, the right positioning and further development of the event. With the right results: kleine fabriek has become a major player in children's fashion, shoes, interior and toys.

During this winter jubilee edition, a record number of Dutch and international labels will present themselves. Many well-known names but also exciting newcomers are on the exhibitors list. With this time a record of "green" labels.

With 265 stands, this edition of kleine fabriek is the largest ever. We have 56 newcomers, like French Connection, Start-Rite Shoes, Krunk Denim and Alice Pi. One of the most remarkable newcomers is actually an oldie: Oilily. The Dutch children's clothing brand goes back to its roots and will show its brand new collection at kleine fabriek: the Oilily Classic Collection.

The more than 400 labels that can be admired at kleine fabriek, origin from 19 different countries. The foreign top 3 is filled up by Danish, Italian and French labels. These countries bring original new brands like Lucky Boy Sunday, La Tia Calula and the restyled Naf Naf/Chevignon.

But there is, as always, also a lot of nice Dutch design to admire. Renowned names like Bengh per principesse, Kidscase, Claesen's and Noppies are alternated by promising newcomers like Little Label, Super Ego and Inke.

Remarkable -and hopeful- is the large amount of brands that have a sustainable production. Organic cotton is used more and more, brands focus on 'clean' production methods, and a lot of attention is paid to the working conditions in the countries of origin. Kleine fabriek, with the arrival of brands like Bamboo Baby, Ocra, Bobo Choses, Hopsan and Natur-elle, is becoming greener and greener!

The tenth edition of kleine fabriek is of course all about children's clothing, accessories, shoes, interiors and toys, but there is some amusement as well. A young, promising artist will be at work during the fair. In the 'kf bookstore' there will be a great offer of cool children's books. And just like last edition, photographer Anne Dokter will catch new clothing collections in a special setting.
