November 2010 entires

We’re really proud of our stockists.
They really care about children, the environment and our clothing. Babi Pur is one such company which sells Pili
Pala clothing online and in their lovely Porthmadog store.
The company was established in 2007 by husband and wife team Peter and
Jolene. Following the birth of their
first daughter, Harriet, they found city
life quite challenging and decided to leave the insurance companies they worked
for and return to Jolene’s home town of Porthmadog.
Inspired by their daughter and the need to ensure she was dressed in
ethically produced clothing and played with toys that would stimulate and
educate her without damaging the environment, they set up an internet company sepecialising
in ethical babywear, childrenswear and accessories. 2007 was a particularly busy but exciting
year for Peter and Jolene as Isobelle, their second daughter was born and
cemented their belief that children should be brought up in a world which
encouraged fair trade.
If you’re looking for a gift for someone special, or fancy a peek at their
shop, take a look at their online shop.

On Monday evening we ventured out in the cold for
our annual sensory overdose at the Fair.
Every November the fair visits Aberystwyth and we go along for an
evening of fun.
We drink in the air which is heavy with the
heady smells of hotdogs, fried onions, hot sugar and donuts. We go from one ride to another, trying not to
be scared by the speed and height achieved by some of the rides.
The flashing lights, loud music and shrieks
of excitement all contribute to an evening where our kids are jumping up and
down, pleading for us to let them have ‘just one more go’.
It’s hardly an organic experience, but for
one night of the year, we think it’s great!

to our hearts here at Pili Pala Childrenswear so we’re really looking forward
to getting involved and raising some money for children’s causes here in the

Let us know what you’re planning and keep sending in your photos. We’d love to see what you get up to, the most
innovative fundraising efforts and how much you manage to raise for this worthy

We have some rather exciting news! We're launching our 2011 collection today! Yippee! We're working with one of our fabulous local stockists, Jac-do in Aberaron, and holding a launch event at their shop tonight. Customers and fans of Pili Pala are all welcome to join in the fun - champagne corks will be flying! Amongst the new range are some seriously cute outfits, starting with the all important organic underwear available in either organic red cotton or organic red and navy cotton with a yellow trim (so cool we want some grown up ones too!). Other new additions include dungarees and a dungaree dress, a cosy blanket, snug velour jumper and some really rather trendy baby vests and babygros. Our collectiin is being rolled out to stores as we speak and the full collection will be available on our website in February. Can't wait that long for one of our new velour jumpsuits? Need one now? Drop us a line and we'll put you in touch with one of our stockists. Getting back to the serious business of our launch ( we're always serious about having fun!). If you're lucky enough to be in the Aberaeron area today, pop in to Jac-do for a glass of bubbly, a slice of cake and a peek at our new collection -it'd be great to see you there!
