Karibou was born in 2016 in beautifully-lush and green New Zealand, started by a mum of two who was inspired to bring something beautiful into this world. With a vision to inspire, delight, and connect mothers everywhere over time the company mission had soon become clear: To make everyday special.
But Karibou is more than just a clothing brand. We are all about celebrating the little moments, however mundane they might seem sometimes as we go through the journey of raising little humans. We believe there is always space to make those everyday moments just a little bit more special.
Over the years Karibou the brand became known for the high quality 100% linen fabrics as well as luxuriously soft velours, cottons, and more. Our designs are all developed locally in our Auckland studio, each design then being carefully crafted in a couple of small family-owned factories in Asia. These important partners of ours allow us to bring our vision to life and we value everything they do for us as we learn and grow together.
Today Karibou is available in 12 countries worldwide through boutique stockists that have the same vision as we do. Our mission is to keep growing and creating, not as a fast-fashion brand, but as a brand that values individuality, sustainability, and magic between mother and child.
