A new, home-grown brand has launched in Bahrain, with inspiration from across the oceans. Caramelo Kids Boutique, founded by Andalusian entrepreneur Elisa Plaza Godoy, focuses on elegant kids’ products, which have all been made in cities across the Iberian Peninsula.
“Spain has a strong tradition of fine tailoring and it is incontestable in classic kids’ occasion-wear,” says Godoy. “You can immediately see the difference when they prance around in one of my outfits.”
Across the bright and stylish 300-square metre boutique, which is located across the road from the House of Uniforms, in the growing area of Segaya, you’ll find a range of clothes, accessories, furniture and bedding for kids of all ages, from new-borns to tweens.
What makes this place different, says Godoy, is that these are limited-edition products that are exclusive and bespoke, but also reasonably priced.
“Every item was hand-picked by myself during my business tour in Spain,” she says. “I have pieces from all over the Iberian Peninsula, from the Basque region and Catalunya to Sevilla.”
It’s not just about shopping, either. You can also book a one-on-one consultation to chat about what kind of furniture you’re looking for and even get your baby’s bedding tailor-made. On top of that, the Caramelo team will help you reserve or choose presents for baby showers and birthdays, and they have a delivery service.
Let’s just say it’s a bit of a one-stop-shop for all your kids’ comfort needs.
