Bon Tot is....
Kristina: Kristina ran her own holistic massage business in the USA (where she was born) and then, after moving to the UK, ran a small artisan company that manufactured and retailed chocolate. She has a passion for small business and a penchant for French Bulldogs... and fashion... and combining the two!
Graham: Graham is an architect and studied at the College of Art in Edinburgh. He grew up with a love of drawing and building things and an in-built attraction to the colour grey!
Frisco: Frisco is a French Bulldog, who joined the Bon Tot team in 2011. He was born on the west coast, but moved east to pursue his loves of eating, sleeping and lap lounging.
Clemence: The newest member of the team, but by far the most opinionated! Charged with quality control and product testing, Clemence loves singing, dancing, tower building, and ducks.
Bon Tot was founded in 2014 by Kristina and Graham Currie and offers a carefully edited collection of design-led children's clothing and toys, sourced from small brands around the globe. Simply Good Design for ages 0-6.
Quality over quantity is our mantra. We only sell things that we really love and our focus is on the designer and small batch production, so you know where your products come from and who crafted them.
We believe in slow, sustainable fashion. Simple, comfortable, thoughtfully designed and carefully detailed items are what we strive to source. We're working with brands that use the best quality fabrics and responsible manufacturing processes to produce long lasting garments that represent good value for money and that won't cost the earth, from the perspective of your wallet or our planet!
We promise to try our hardest to use recycled materials, like our bio-degradable mailing bags, and to work with companies who have similarly ethical approaches.
We don't want to use the word "uni-sex", but we do want our clothes to avoid obvious gender stereotyping, instead focussing on modern, sophisticated palettes, patterns and cuts, so that many of our items can be worn by girl or boy, or handed down from sister to brother.
Creativity, imagination and play rank high on our list of priorities when we're shopping for unique toys and games for your tots.
Most of all, we hope you find all of the above in a friendly environment that focusses on parent and child equally. We see no reason why you shouldn't be able to dress your tot to suit your style, without cramping theirs!
We hope you like the choices we've made and would love to hear from you with any comments, questions or just a plain old "hello"!
Kristina, Graham, Clemence & Frisco
