Oobi is an Australian children’s clothing, homewares and lifestyle label for girls aged newborn to twelve. It’s a beautiful and thoughtful range of fashion, designed with fun, colour and movement in mind! We pride ourselves on our signature, hand-printed cotton fabrics, designed by Alexandra Riggs in Sydney, Australia since 2002.
Our cottons are printed by artisans in Jaipur, India who utilise screen printing or rotary techniques and even vegetable dyes in some garments. This ensures the 'stamp’ of the hands that make the garment, and that artisan skills are kept alive. We work together with an ethical and considerate pursuit of all things beautiful. We employ a collective of women who work with their hands using their long-standing family techniques.
Our designer has spent years traveling, working and collaborating with our creators and a respectful, mutually appreciative and ethical manufacturing process has been strictly adhered to. We are proud of our team of artisans and they are equally proud to work with our company - the proof is in the quality of the creation!
Our aim every day is to create a magical world for your child. To find a space where your child can feel and look amazing. That’s why we love to use the #letthembelittle - because when we see girls in their Oobi, we know that they can be themselves, and love how they look and feel in our garments. And that’s what it’s all about! Marching to the beat of your own drum, mixing-and-matching however YOU want, and finding little delights everywhere you look.
We are proud of our charitable program, Oobi-Fy The World. We promise to donate a piece of “Oobi Magic” in your honour for every single new season garment sold. In this way, we pay it forward to a child in need, every single day. You can find out more about our partnerships on the Oobi-Fy The World page.
