My grandmother’s garden, with its host of a thousand different-coloured flowers, is where I grew up and discovered the world around me. This special place was the inspiration for the garden in my imagination, Tinge Garden, where the love of babywearing, a passion for beautiful fabrics, humour and artistic creation come together in a joyous medley.
A pioneering company in France
Launched at the end of 2013, Tinge Garden was the first French brand to offer handmade babywearing wraps in limited editions.
I’ve always been passionate about authentic objects, created by the hands of expert craftspeople. Moreover, I’ve always wanted to create babywearing wraps that have a story behind them, and through which this story can be told.
I draw my inspiration from the ancestral culture of Hungary, my native land. By creating babywearing wraps, I can use traditional patterns as a basis for my designs. It was only natural, therefore, that I should ask Hungarian craftspeople to create my products.
A whole network of professionals is involved in creating Tinge Garden wraps, from the very first pencil stroke to the shipping of the finished products. Spinners, dyers, textile designers, graphic designers, weavers, textile finishers, couturiers and printers: each specialist brings heritage in the form of traditional techniques, a passion for their craft, and a desire to protect the planet.
In a world that encourages overconsumption, I have deliberately chosen to keep my company small and to produce modest quantities.
Environmental protection is a priority for me and is part of every step in the creation and manufacturing processes. Tinge Garden suppliers, raw materials and dye are carefully selected, fabric offcuts and other surplus raw materials are reused, and the finished products are sent using recyclable packaging via carbon-neutral shipping.
The joy of babywearing
Aesthetics, quality and comfort are the three characteristics at the heart of Tinge Garden creations.
The colours, materials and weaves are always brought together with passion to create stunning fabrics especially designed for babywearing. The chosen weaving techniques guarantee the well-being and comfort of both the child and the wearer.
The joy of sharing
Babywearing is an exchange between the child and the wearer. This is why it is so important for me to co-operate with contemporary artists from various fields.
It brings me such joy to know that throughout the world, babies are being held close to their parents, in a wrap created with love and respect, inspired by a pretty Hungarian flower like those found in my childhood garden.
Creator, dreamer and mother.
