16ths Child

Eastbourne, sussex

Hello I’m Klara founder of 16ths Child, I create handmade and hand embroidered cushions and pictures perfect for any special occasion.

Using high quality sustainable fabrics such as linen and Oeko tex cottons is very important to me, I’m always looking and sourcing beautiful fabrics especially keen on using dead stock fabrics where possible.

Each piece is unique, completely customisable and crafted for treasuring. Perfect for commemorating an unforgettable day!

The story behind the business
Meet 16ths Child

I started 16ths Child in January 2021, inspired by my two young daughters, both born on the 16th. It was a creative outlet at a strange old time in the world, allowing me to focus on something beautiful and fun!

I started with knitwear with a newborn in tow, and spent those feeding sessions sewing away until the idea of the cushions was born. I had so much fun sourcing fabrics and creating designs, and the response was something I hadn’t imagined!

I also wanted 16ths Child to be as sustainable as possible. I use fabrics with a low carbon footprint such as linen, the cushion inserts are made in the uk from Organic GOTS certified cotton, and my packaging is 100% recyclable.

16ths Child nurtures my passion for textiles and love of embroidery in each handmade piece. Every item is crafted with thoughtfulness and precision, making it an ideal gift for a special person in your life!

I am just so grateful to be on this journey creating beautiful pieces that will be a part of your special occasions.
