Amsterdam-based Donsje (Dutch for fluffy) produces a wide range of adorable booties for babies and toddlers, from new born to two years old, as well as super sweet and stylish accessories for older children. On-trend and with a nostalgic twist, each product has the cute factor and comes beautifully packaged in a bag dangling a tiny bell, making Donsje the perfect gift.
The clue is in the name - Donsje products are not just super cute, they are super comfortable - and safe too. With the healthy development of tiny feet in mind, Donsje designs ensure that baby and toddler feet are well-protected and have the space to move freely, allowing them to develop naturally and safely in preparation for those long-awaited first steps. In the smallest sizes, the leather soles have been roughened and are non-slip and from 12 months up all of Donsje’s shoes have a flexible rubber sole. Fastenings allow the shoes to be slipped on and off easily and keep them secure, even on the wriggliest of feet.
HANDMADE & FAIR TRADE
Corporate responsibility is key at Donsje. The brand has a dedicated factory in Indonesia with a work force of local artisans who create all the products by hand. Donsje adheres strictly to fair trade regulations. Workers are paid fair wages and are treated with respect. In addition, the company strives to recruit enthusiastic and fully committed employees who are trained to manufacture Donsje products with love and an eye to detail.
