Edmund & Rose in the Beginning
It all began in 2011, when I left my busy retail management job to stay at home with our newborn son Riley. Motherhood was not quite as busy as I was used to, and honestly, I was a little bit bored. I have always enjoyed sewing and started learning at an early age, so it was a natural hobby to take up in my new found spare time.
I started making baby quilts and baby burp cloths for my friends who were all beginning their own families. Then everyone started telling me I should make them to sell at markets. And so the business was born! In those days my business was known as Tina Barton Designs, because that’s just what it was. I designed quilts, baby burp cloths, changing mats, bags, you name it. If it was meant for a baby, I made it. Then once a month I would pack everything into the back of the car, and take it all to the local markets to sell. But I didn’t make clothes then, that came later.
Along Came Eliza
So about a year later our daughter Eliza was born, and I desperately wanted to dress her in gorgeous handmade clothes. It was a great excuse to buy from some of my favourite handmade boutiques. But I also started making some little pieces here and there for her. And I fell in love. There is something very magical about taking a flat piece of fabric and turning it into the outfits I had pictured in my mind. And so Edmund & Rose was born!
Here I am, more than 8 years later, still making those outfits, and loving every minute of it.
The Best Part?
The best part about what I do now is seeing your beautiful children wearing my creations. Those flat pieces of fabric that I turned into outfits with my own two hands.
