Baby Clothes Online – ‘Snug as a Bug in a Rug’

From the very first scan to the initial in-utero flutterings, a mom-to-be cannot wait to hold and cherish her tiny little bundle. But throughout her pregnancy, there is one thing that cannot be helped; one distraction that keeps her busy: shopping for baby clothes online or instore, accompanied by ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs.’  


This modern convenience of shopping for baby clothes online is a far cry from a generation ago. But it does provide parents of today with unique choice and quality. And that is exactly what mom needs and exactly what baby deserves.   

Handcrafted stories from yesterday…

Traditionally – in the good ol’ days – a mother-in-waiting would hand sew and knit a ‘layette’ during her pregnancy; the basic set of baby clothes her little one would need. Even though times have changed, there is still something wistful about that picture of yesteryear which is in stark contrast to today’s world of modern mass-produced kiddies clothing. The concept of ‘slow fashion’ for littlies, where each handmade item of clothing would have been handcrafted and stitched together slowly, adds a special sense of love and story.

Handcrafted stories for today…

We invite you to visit Rosie Bee and shop for beautiful handcrafted baby clothes online. (If you have not yet been introduced to our very special South African baby and children’s clothing range, we suggest you first read our homegrown story). 


At Rosie Bee, we have taken the idea of slow, ‘handmade-with-love’ baby clothes and redefined children’s fashion for our 21st-century lifestyle without compromising the personalised element. 


Each item of our online baby clothing is carefully handsewn from the softest, breathable fabric, with original nostalgic designs. Our limited edition ranges are made to order to ensure the best quality.

Handcrafted stories for tomorrow…

The beauty of purchasing Rosie Bee baby clothes online is not only our attention to detail in each little outfit and garment, but our excellent quality fabrics, which will last and last. They can even be kept for baby # 2 or #3, or put aside in a memory trunk for the next generation to discover. 

Our original soft, stretchy and gentle swaddle sets, in charming botanicals, allow you to indulge your newborn’s littleness before they are no longer little – keeping them as ‘snug as a bug in a rug.’ These special cocooned moments need to be captured on camera. To complement your nursery’s decor, add an element of whimsy with our fitted cot sheets and change mat covers.

All our toddler and children’s clothes allow your baby to grow with Rosie Bee’s designs, providing nostalgically handcrafted clothing for many tomorrows.

Children’s Online Clothing Store: Rosie Bee’s Homegrown Story

Every brand begins with a story – the behind-the-scenes inspiration – that slowly takes on a life of its own until it becomes a reality. C.S.Lewis, who invited us behind the wardrobe to the wonderful, imaginary world of Narnia, said: ‘A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.’ And that is where Rosie Bee’s homegrown story begins: a children’s online clothing store that takes us beyond the wardrobe to a small South African farm that will capture the imagination of children and adults alike.


Rosie Bee children’s online clothing store is a business full of love and heart – made for whimsical play – making this a brand that is more than just beautifully handcrafted clothing with a delightful nostalgic vibe.


So just imagine you are sitting on Granny’s porch, watching the children play and explore – and enjoy the story…


Every story starts with an idea

The Rosie Bee brand is no exception. So what was the idea that gave birth to a children’s online clothing store? Well actually, it was a birth story – a tiny baby girl, an overwhelmed new mom and many sleepless nights filled with online shopping for pretty baby clothes. (The unlikely, but perfect plot ingredients for the emergence of a creative vision!)  

This is how Laura, founder of Rosie Bee, tells it in her own words: ‘I was in limbo – trying to find me again. I realised that I needed to become a new version of my old self. The one thing that sparked this transition was my need for creativity. And Emily fueled this creativity. I Iove supporting local, but when Emily was tiny I couldn’t quite find what I was looking for. So the idea of Rosie Bee was formed in my head.’

Every story has a name

The name ‘Rosie Bee’ came out of a conversation between Laura and her gran  – a no-nonsense person with honest, unfiltered opinions. (She didn’t like any of the original name options on the list). Laura knew that ‘rose’ had to somehow be in the brand title as it was her gran’s favourite flower. As they got sidetracked, talking about flowers and gardening, a random memory of a cousin’s childhood doll, called ‘Rosebee,’ popped into the conversation, and from there ‘Rosie Bee’ was born. (Granny approved!)

Every story has a setting

The varied landscape of the Limpopo province – with its dramatic mountain ranges, misty views and hazy sunsets – is the perfect setting for a family farm and the home of Rosie Bee children’s online clothing brand. Laura’s grandparent’s farm – combined with her background as a botanist – creates the perfect backdrop for her studio where her handcrafted kiddies’ clothing range of unique flora- and nature-inspired prints comes to life.

Every story has characters

For Rosie Bee, two of the main characters – behind the scenes – are Baptiste and Kenneth.

Baptiste, originally employed as a packer for Laura’s mother’s ceramic business on the farm, had been taught to sew by Laura’s gran and aunt. When asked to make a dress from leftover fabric for Laura’s baby girl, Baptiste made the perfect little dress, without a pattern. His creative flair and quality sewing skills have blossomed into Rosie Bee’s fun baby and children’s’ online clothing range. The current Autumn Rose print is his favourite design.

Kenneth’s background was sewing adult clothing and children’s school clothing, so he is enjoying extending his repertoire to include Rosie Bee’s baby and children’s clothes. His favourite is the rainbow print and he loves sewing the leggings/bottoms range for little girls and boys. 

And then, of course, we have Rosie Bee’s ‘illustrator’, a talented artist from Cape Town who brings the nostalgic-inspired patterns, botanical prints and whimsical designs to life.
