Shopping for children can be quite a task and you could easily run out of places to shop for your toddler. Krupa Joseph suggests a few different stores across Mumbai that should help solve your problem
With the onset of mass-produced machine textiles, the diversity in the kind of garments you find on a store rack has been diminishing. While you might be willing to compromise on clothing for yourself, it would be far from possible to do the same for your little ones. While buying exorbitantly priced, branded clothes for someone who will grow out of them in a few months is out of the question, where could you possibly turn? We’ve listed out a few places where you’re bound to find different, high-quality clothes that your kids will love.
Love The World Today
Started by two sisters, Dipna and Dipti Ahuja, Love The World Today is a brand that offers comfortable, non-synthetic clothes for your little ones. Made of child-friendly fabric and yet boasting of good designs, the company was started as part of their effort to create something that benefits more than its consumers. If you are socially and environmentally responsible and are looking for quality clothing for children, this is the best shopping website you can visit.
This is probably not one of the first names that pops up when you’re shopping for children and toddlers. However, if you feel like dressing your child up for the next big fat Indian wedding, this is a great place to start.
