a colourful collection of fun & comfy kid's clothes

about us

Raspberry Red is an independent online Children's Shop. Many of the children's clothes brands we sell are organic, most are Scandinavian or British designed, the choice for which has been influenced by my love of the quality, practicality and design of Scandinavian childrens clothes. Each design has something that makes it stand out, whether it be the fact that is eye catching, has a major cute factor about it or is just simply gorgeous!

The company was started in August 2009 by myself, Lise Austen, after spending 12 years in the IT industry, followed by a few years spent looking after my young family. During this time I developed a passion for good quality, well designed children's clothes. Being half Danish I used to buy many of my children's clothes in Denmark. The break away from the corporate world gave me the opportunity to start afresh and do something I am really passionate about, hence the birth of Raspberry Red!

Clothes are sourced from suppliers whose design and manufacturing ethics meet the same criteria I use for buying my own children's clothes. These criteria are at the heart of Raspberry Red. I love beautifully designed, ethically manufactured, colourful kids clothes that are so comfortable that kids can move freely in them, whether they are running around at the park or having fun at a party! I look for versatile hard wearing designs, which can be used across seasons and put away in the cupboard for younger siblings, providing better value for money! Some of the brands are established but I also like to support new designers and offer something which is not available on the High Street.

In November 2012, the Raspberry Red shop was opened at Holme Grange Craft Village, just outside Wokingham in Berkshire in the UK. Unusual quality toys were added to complement our children's clothes. Including tradional toys, wooden toys, mobiles, creative and inspiring toys for newborns to age 10 plus. Sadly due to a decline in footfall in our third year at Holme Grange I took the decision not to renew the lease, so the shop closed on the 14th November 2015. The Website still remains active!

I really hope you like what we are offering and find some beautiful Scandinavian inspired childrens clothes and toys for your little ones to enjoy!
