5 Reasons we love KEEDO: Quality South African kid’s Fashion for all.

by | Feb 1, 2019 | Fashion for Kids, South African Fashion, What we wear | 81 comments

Kicking off February with our very first fashion feature of the year and it’s such a good one… Obviously by now most of our readers know we are passionate about supporting local. We also value quality over quantity and have moved away from supporting “fast fashion”. (Clothes that’s high fashion yet low quality, made to last for only 2 – 3 months. Clothes than usually end in massive waste landfills.)

KEEDO is a local brand that has stood the test of time! Over the past 25 years they have stuck to their roots as a company that aims to produce quality South African kid’s fashion. To this day (with the exception of their denim fabrics, a few accessories and the books they sell) the KEEDO range is 100% made in South Africa. This however is not the only reason we love supporting them…

1. KEEDO makes clothes with their little customers in mind.

Season after season KEEDO creates collections filled with a selection of pretty tees, tank tops, leggings, shorts and casual dresses. Garment that are soft, comfortable, easy to wear and made for playing, jumping and running.

Ava and Lia can’t be more relaxed in their adorable Pineapple Leggings (R51). The tropical colours also puts a smile on my face. Add a crisp white tank top or soft turquoise dress and you have all the feels of summer.

Made from the best 100% cotton means the girls stay cool. We’ve also worn and washed it all and nothing has lost it’s colour or shape, wash after wash.

Attention to detail with delicate embroidered images and a simplistic logo design ensures that KEEDO pieces stay timeless. I know Lia will be passing on her dress to Ava and I’ll be gushing over how cute they look sharing clothes.

I also appreciate the tiny pop of colour added to Ava’s tank top making it just that tad bit cuter and fitted.

2. KEEDO makes clothes for any occasion.

Christenings, weddings, photoshoots, birthdays… We all have special occasions in need of a gorgeous outfit. KEEDO is our go-to for affordable “glam” (and they even have stylish options for boys as well).

Quality South African kids fashion

The Butterfly Dress Set (R399) is one of Ava’s absolute favourite outfits and if I don’t hide it in her cupboard, she would ask to wear it daily – with her KEEDO headband crown of course…

I can’t blame her, she looks absolutely darling! Made from stretchy cotton with a soft net skirt (no scratching) and white leggings this dress is as functional as it is beautiful. Being machine washable makes it easy to care for too.

Lia never misses an opportunity to “dress-up” and the Sparkle Dress (R149) with Swan T (R89) ticks all her fashion boxes!

Once again it’s the love and thoughtful touches KEEDO added to this design that makes their little customers (and their mamas) swoon. A lovely little swan and a few sequence stars makes this outfit a princess dream without going over the top.

3. KEEDO is a one stop shop for little one’s ages newborn to 7 years.

Shopping for 3 girls can be such a challenge at times and being able to find all I need in one spot makes life so much easier, and saves a lot of time!

Quality South African kids fashion

Bonus points for having the same designs, like these swan dresses, available across the entire age range. It makes all my #twinningplusone dreams come true.

Also thank you KEEDO for adding a button to the neckline making these dresses easy to put on and also ensuring prolonged wearability. They will become tops paired with bottoms as the girls grow taller.

It’s TRIPLE the girly goodness with Eliana, Lia and Ava happily rocking the same look.

4. KEEDO keeps it trendy and fun.

Stay current without blowing the budget by adding a trendy touch to your little one’s outfit with KEEDO’s accessories.

Quality South African kids fashion

Crowns, headbands, hair clips, shoes, handbags, hats, suspenders and more in ever colour you could want!

Another favouite item Ava never leaves home without; her Wings Backpack (R199). It’s home to her most valuable possessions.

5. KEEDO cares about your pocket, the environment and our country.

Over the past few months KEEDO has taken on every effort in slashing their prices, working towards being a brand that’s more affordable to all. They also run incredible SALES and specials (like the one happening right now in store and online).

With their passion for kids, it’s not just all about the fashion. KEEDO wants to make a difference combatting poverty in South Africa through job creation and education.

Everytime you buy a KEEDO garment or one of their handmade soft or wooden toys you’re feeding our economy, ensuring jobs for countless fellow South Africans.

Aimed at being a one-stop gifting shop, KEEDO also sells a variety of educational toy and books carefully selected to add value to your child’s life. Reading in particular is important and KEEDO encourages parents to read as much and as often as possible with their kids.

    I get heart palpatations whenever i get into a Keedo Store ??!!! It ticks all the boxes as a mom of 3kids whenever i have a bit extra to spend for a special occasion i find clothing for all my babies in one store and that’s amazing. Quality never disappoints my daughter ia 11months and she’s wearing some of her rompers and vest since 4 months already, no shrinkage, No fade, the quality is amazing ?And being a Proudly SA brand that contributes to our economy makes it even more better. If i would need to choose a outfit it would definitely be the Party Outfit for my daughters 1st birthday on 23 FEBRUARY it would be amazing to wear my favourite brand on her birthday ❤️❤️❤️These outfits are fit for princesses ??I’ll definitely be sharing ??
