Share a moment with a band of Gypsies traveling the dusty roads in between long forgotten towns, or catch a view of carny folk backstage limbering up and practicing for the night’s performance.
This season is all about the transient life of the Carny Folk, the moments away from the stage and the way unrelated people become a family. A family that they trust with their lives on the high wire.
With such a show the outfits are bright and bold. The tight rope dress is striking in teal and the colour passion with a beautifully embroidered waist detail. It also comes in delicate cross stitch and spot fabric’s. The fortune skirt predicts you want it, with triangle panels and bold colours. The star dress is a stand out, with hand screen printed fabric, stripes and cross stitch. Not forgetting the gypsy top that will entice you with a spell of lace and modal.
There is plenty for the alluring male of the centre stage. You cannot go further than the ringmaster shorts in divine linen and the keeper shirt in vanilla or chocolate cotton with red buttons. For a more dressed down look the strongman tee will become a much lived in item for the summer.
Step inside the traveling caravan with the Knuffle Kid this summer, with the new Carny Folk range.
Sizes 2, 4, 6 & 8 for boys and girls.
A little about Knuffle Kid.
Knuffle loosely translated from dutch is “to cuddle” – Kid is a baby goat or small child.
Knuffle Kid is all about the joy of being a child – it’s about the time in your life when memories first form – it’s about having a favourite dress that gets passed down to your little sister or eventually to your own child.
Designing and sewing had always been a big part of Knuffle Kid’s creator Emma Strybosch’s world. Her Barbies always had new couture, then she started to fashioned her own outfits from second hand clothes and hand-me-downs at the age of five.
With creative hands and a need to make, the perfect opportunity arose after the birth of her first daughter Ava. With time at home caring for munchkin number one, the sewing machine started to get a work out. By the time number two – Little Ruby – came along. The market scene began and soon after trade shows were being attended.
Now in shops all over Australia, Knuffle Kid has grown from a couple of girl’s dresses to a full range for both boys and girls.
A strong emphasis is kept on the need to produce within Australia and Strybosch is constantly searching for Australian made and vintage fabrics, she also designs a fabric for each range with the help of screen printers Ink and Spindle. Making Knuffle Kid truly a unique brand.
