Patta teams up with fellow Amsterdam-based brand Coloured Goodies to create non-toxic baby dolls. As both black-owned brands, the collab acknowledges diversity by using a brown-skin dolls.
"As an independent, black-owned company with a strong emphasis on (biologic as well as chosen) family, representation truly matters at Patta, says the brand. "We pride ourselves on telling stories that are missing from culture in large. So when we come across entrepreneurs in any capacity that have that same mission, we will always try to link with them and join forces."
The Baby Doll is dripped in a sweat suit that comes in a choice of a Forest Green or a Melange Grey colorway. The clothes are made from up-cycled deadstock Patta fabric in Amsterdam in The Refugee Company's Makerspace. For even more of a flex, the baby doll comes with actual baby VANS Slip-Ons.
“The moment they came to me I thought, this is great. The main reason was because Patta is black-owned,” said Coloured Goodies founder Ellen Brudet of partnering with the streetwear label. “But my personal reason was because they have longevity in entrepreneurship like me.”
The Patta x Coloured Goodies doll will be available online and in-store at Patta Amsterdam, Milan and London from Friday, October 11.
