About Us

Who are martiniccaboison?

We are martiniccaboison, for little people. We are grandparents, parents, children, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, cousins. We are a family-run business based in South Yorkshire, UK and we want you to become a part of our journey.

martiniccaboison is a global online baby boutique selling traditional British and Spanish clothing and accessories for your little ones. We like to think that our pieces are fashionable enough for your little ones' tastes but also cute enough for yours, whilst also not breaking the bank. We are truly passionate about bringing you the finest quality clothing from some of the best European brands there are which is why we personally hand select all of the designs that you see on our website.

Who Are We?

martiniccaboison was founded in September 2017 by a parent and daughter team: Howard, Susan, and Ellie. This is Howard and Susan's second time venturing into the baby clothing world, after they made their debut in the 1980s.

Our Story

martiniccaboison was born by chance in September 2017. Susan was busy hand crafting her Bespoke range and needed an online presence, so I (Ellie) decided to create a website where she could show off and sell her beautiful designs. We soon got carried away though, with thoughts of "why not sell hats and scarves to be sold alongside Susan's creations?", so we secured our first ever brand, Kinder. We quickly discovered Kinder didn't just manufacture our (now best-selling) pom pom hats though, they also hand made pretty dresses, so obviously we had to stock some of those too... and our offering just grew, and grew, and grew.

We began with just one small room in our home, but quickly outgrew that and found ourselves storing stock in our living room. The solution? A log cabin in the garden. However, the second it was complete we realised we had already outgrown that - so we renovated our garage, but then that wasn't big enough, we needed an overflow room! So we constructed another shed behind the log cabin. We just kept growing, and growing, and growing, until our living room was soon full to the brim yet again.

We are now in November 2021 and are proud stockists of 37 brands, have been awarded the title "Best Luxury Traditional Baby Clothing Brand - UK", and are sending parcels all across the world, from Sheffield (right here on our doorstep!) to Hollywood and Sydney, and are in our second "official" warehouse meaning we can finally sit in our living room again for the first time in nearly 3 years!

martiniccaboison truly is a labour of love: every order we receive earns it's own little happy dance; every kind review or email melts our hearts a little more; every photo of your little one wearing our clothing feels surreal. We are so incredibly grateful for every single one of you for allowing us to make it this far, for trusting in little old us, for, as cheesy as it sounds, making our dreams come true. We wouldn't be here without you, so thank you.

Eve

Eve is my childhood best friend and also head of customer service. When you chat to M&J via email, chat box or social media 9 times out of 10 it'll be Eve on the other end.

But Why martiniccaboison?

martiniccaboison are cherished names in our family, with every first born girl having Millicent as her middle name and every first born boy having the first name John. We wanted to honour our family tradition and decided our newest endeavour would also bear the family names - no other name would have been suitable for us.
