Frequently Asked Questions
CHOOSING A HANDMADE BABY SHOE
What size should I buy?
Measuring the baby's feet is always the best policy.
Our sizes are the INSOLE length of a shoe.
1. Measure both feet from the heel to longest toe
2. Maximum allowance you can give is 1cm
3. Tadah! That's the size to buy!
What if I am buying a gift?
If you are buying a gift for a newborn (Birth to 1 month), Size 1 (9.5cm) fits most babies.
If you are buying a gift for a 1 year old, Size M (12cm) fits most of them.
If in doubt, ask for a measurement or get a bigger size they can grow into.
My child has yet to walk, his/her feet is about 10.5cm. How?
You can just buy a walker series shoe even if the child hasn't learnt to walk.
The additional cushion and non-slip soles are good even for cruising or simply standing.

How do I wash the shoe?
1. Hand wash the shoe under a running tap with a little detergent (Do not scrub)
2. The colours may run but this is normal as they can be washed off by running water and rubbing it with your fingers
3. Squeeze dry by hand and press it dry with a clean towel
4. Hang and air dry the shoes
5. Give it a little iron (low heat) if you want it to look brand new!
Can I just put them in a washing machine or tumble dryer?
Our shoes are delicately handmade and would prefer to be washed by hand.
Some washing machines exert a lot of force and may damage the shoes. We strongly discourage tumble drying because they tend to shrink cotton products.
Do you have a physical store in Singapore?
No, we not have a physical store in Singapore. Sky high shop rental prices will make it difficult to offer you products at great prices!
Do you accept stockists/distributors for your products?
Yes we do accept stockists and distributors who wish to purchase our handmade baby shoes/hampers.
