five/eleven offer a range of accessories for children and their homes, proudly handmade in New York City using the finest fabrics. This lovely collection features a range of gorgeous additions, from fashion accessories such as hairclips and bows, to baby care essentials including bibs and blankets, from beautiful touches for children’s spaces such as cushions and blankets, to adorable and useful bags and pouches. Quite a range of pretty things then, but the items share much in common -- each one is sweet yet sophisticated, delicate yet colourful, and all are meticulously made from the finest fabrics and trims carefully selected from renowned houses in France, England and Japan as well as the US.
five/eleven is the creation of NYC-based French mama Diane. The story began when Diane, pregnant with her second child, couldn’t find the simple, functional products in subtle colours that she sought for her family. She started designing and making her own items, and quickly began to make them for friends too. When she moved from Paris to New York she decided to take the plunge and set up five/eleven – what a great decision!
Diane believes that practicality and quality should go hand in hand with beauty and fun. She places great importance in her fabrics. Full of grace, they capture her vision of childhood and offer something special for the everyday. All products are made in direct contact with Diane, either handmade by Diane herself in her Manhattan studio or by her manufacturer in Brooklyn, with whom Diane works extremely closely. She checks every single item herself before sending – now there’s a personal touch!
