Apolina is the creation of fashion industry mama and bohemian embroidered dress-lover Caroline. When her first daughter came along Caroline’s head filled with memories of the cherished clothing from her own childhood; dresses hand-embroidered by her own grandmother, 1970s hand-me-downs from older cousins… When she searched for similar for her own girls she found she had a task on her hands and the idea for Apolina was born – the idea of creating a line of inspiring childrenswear reflecting Caroline’s own personal style, for like-minded mamas and their beautiful free-spirited babies.
All garments are proudly and ethically made in India, at a small family-run sample workshop. They are 'small batch' production and the free-hand machine embroidery is created by true artisans.
