The label

Ketiketa (girl & boy in Nepali) is a French label creating clothes, bed linen and decorative accessories for children from newborn to 10 years old. The label was founded in spring 2007.

 

Ketiketa started with an aim to work with a traditional Nepalese fabric named “dumbar kumari”, after a Nepalese princess who brought the technique of “block printing” back from India to Nepal in the 19th century. The princess then invented a new textile; the printed fabric is wrapped within two layers of finest cotton muslin. Originally used for making shawls, this fabric was soon adapted for children’s clothing.

Ketiketa works with natural fabrics and materials in small-scale manufacturing promoting traditional techniques, working with carvers, independent printers, and small sewing workshops as well as socially motivated industries. In this way we ensure our high standards of quality together with ethical production principles.

 

Ketiketa’s bohemian chic style is made with exotic prints, delicate colour shades, natural fine fabrics and designs inspired by a blending of cultures. Ketiketa designs its collections as instant travel, never have clothes taken you so far so fast.

 

Now girls and boys can be enveloped in our soft, fine fabrics from a far away land.
