Bobo Choses

1675-20073-plistBobo Choses is a playful new Spanish design label with a serious intention: to produce ethical clothes that look and feel good. In the Bobo Choses first collection there is not a single piece of tie-dye in site. Quite the contrary, every single piece in the collection is very different, fun and funky. I love the simple prints that are used in various ways on T-shirts, sweaters, hoodies and trousers. I reckon this is a label that finally caters for boys and girls alike.

And now to the ethical stuff. All the Bobo Choses clothes are produced in their own factory-school in Bangladesh, giving local woman a chance to learn the textile trade. To guarantee that each item is the real deal, every piece has a DNA code attached to it, which you can track back via the website to see who and when it was made! Bobo Choses is now being sold via the lovely online webshop Smallable.

Hi Emilie … I’ve been following your posts for awhile now … I live in Marseille and have to be in Paris on Monday for meetings. I have an 8-week-old baby who has to travel with me everywhere. I’ll be taking the TGV and taxis in Paris. Do I have to bring the baby car seat? I have a very heavy Maxi Cosi. If I just bring a small, light stroller with no car seat, will the taxis in Paris accept me with the baby on my lap? I also don’t know how to seat him in the TGV without the car seat.

Hi Angelique, Parisian taxis will accept you with a baby on your lap and no car seat without any problems. They are actually almost annoyed if people turn up with car seats (ask Courtney).
I travelled loads with little babies on the TGV, I normally brought along a sling so that I could walk easily around the train and kept them on my lap. Alternatively it might be an idea for you to invest into the “SNCFcarte enfant +” which gives you an extra seat and reductions up to 50% for about 60 euros I think…. That way you have a bit more space on the train. Hope this helps!
