Little Hootons was created in 2019, with a vision to bring classically designed and beautifully made children’s coats to a modern market.
As a mother of two small children, with 15 years’ experience as Ladies Buyer at Cordings, I spotted a gap in the market for well-made yet affordable children’s coats. I am passionate about sourcing luxurious fabrics and it was by chance that I discovered a unique woollen mill whilst on holiday with my husband in Portugal. Situated at the highest point of a Natural Park, from where the wool is ethically sourced from a flock of native and rare breed sheep, we were amazed by the softness, weight and durability of the wool and the vibrancy of the yarns. It was from this picture-postcard hillside vista that Little Hootons was born! Combining Portuguese wool of the highest quality, with velvet collars, buttons and cuff trims sourced from a traditional British mill, Little Hootons coats are soft, luxurious and made to last.
My two small children have been central to the development of all aspects of Little Hootons coats – from their fit and durability to their cosiness and comfort. They have loved helping me create our adorable woodland animal characters and my daughter feels very proud to wear the Owl Coat and her brother the Dapper Deer!
If you are looking for a beautiful, timeless coat for your little one, in a choice of pretty colours, please take a look at our range.
That’s me with my crew of woodland treasures!
