As far as coats go this one is pretty special. You can imagine my absolute delight when Rachael from The Great British Baby Company contacted me!
Cut from the most luxurious and softest British lambswool cloth it sits, falls, hangs absolutely perfectly and beautifully but is comfortably soft too so that not only does it look wonderful but it wears wonderful.
I chose The Bloomsbury Coat in Russell Square Chequer which is made of a most delicious tiny deep purple and cut grass green yarn, for a look that is pure elegance.
With The Bloomsbury, just like any and all of The Great British Baby Company’s products, you’re not only buying into elegance and comfort but into a heritage too. The Bloomsbury is made from the softest British lambswool cloth that has been painstakingly woven by a company with over 230 years of expertise.

I asked for a size larger than Tiggy currently is, with her being 17 months old I feared that she wouldn’t be able to wear it for as long as I’d like if I ordered 12-18 months, but fear I shouldn’t have as the sizes are generous but nicely so. Whilst I contemplated if I ought to turn the cuffs back I’m so glad I did as doing so revealed a most incredible coloured lining made with sumptuous British-dyed pure silk from a company that was founded in the 1850’s. I’m almost wishing Tiggy doesn’t grow too quickly whereby I have to turn the cuffs down and hide the beautiful colour that this lining is.
The Bloomsbury really is made to a high standard which should come as no surprise when you read it’s heritage and that it was “named after the area of London where creativity, free-thinking, and unashamed eccentricity have flourished since the mid 19th century, the coat is our tribute to the more colourful side of quintessential Britishness”.
Tiggy has worn her Bloomsbury here, there and everywhere and we have encountered many lovely comments and questions as to where it’s from as it is simply striking and unlike anything else I’ve seen.
I couldn’t be more pleased with The Bloomsbury coat for Tiggy. The colour, the cloth, the cut, and all round gorgeousness that it is, is simply beautiful.
In addition to the beautiful coat itself, the company has a most wonderful aspect of it in that they hold such dear values that you can read about by clicking HERE and have joined forces with leading children’s rights organisation ECPAT UK where part of their belief is that every child is entitled to have a long and happy childhood and you can READ MORE HERE.
I can’t recommend The Great British Baby Company highly enough and know that we’ll be returning as a customer once Tiggy inevitably outgrows her gorgeous Bloomsbury coat.
