the bohemian baby . . . Rikshaw Design
Catherine Fitzsimmons, founder of Rikshaw Design, is one "cool chicky" (as my daughter would say). She's led a life of adventure and travel- she's experienced the glamour of Paris, the beauty of Cape Cod (from the view of a bike), the simply joys of life on a Western dude ranch and the freedom of backpacking across Europe. Her recent positions at Pottery Barn and Ralph Lauren took her to her newfound love- India- where she was taken by the beauty and vibrant colors of India's textiles and block-printing techniques. And in 2008, she used that textile art to create an amazing collection of baby crib bedding, accessories and now clothes that is like no other baby line I know of. The colors are gorgeous. The prints- delicate and fun and the whole look just perfect. So if you are a little sick of smocked dresses, pink polka dots and embroidered sailboats and really drool over John Robshaw and Roberta Freyman (as I do) then this line is perfect for you! We now carry blankets, bib / burp sets, kurtas (tops), bloomers and sunhats. The line has already been quite hot and mentioned in many great blogs and magazines including a recent "shout-out" by Daily Candy. We just absolutely love this line and know you will too!
