porgabé is an abbreviation of the phrase ‘Premium ORGAnic BÉbe’. porgabé focuses on ‘presenting high-quality natural products for our babies’. porgabé’s small lettering represents the babies and kids it works for.
porgabé is composed of 100% organic cotton clothes for babies younger than 12 months, furniture for children made with natural wood, and jewellery products for children, mothers, and fathers.
porgabé was inspired by the Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece ‘Almond Blossom’, which was presented by the artist to his younger brother Theo, to bless the birth of his nephew. porgabé’s packaging incorporates the colour of the almond blossom painting and its flowers. This is why porgabé’s slogan, ‘The first present’, reflects the way in which a newborn baby is the first gift to their parents, friends and family. Likewise, porgabé will be a parent’s first gift to their baby.
Almond blossoms represent hope, which aligns with porgabé’s values. We avoid using disposable plastic in our packaging as we are a sustainable brand focusing on environmentally-friendly production processes. We have decided not to dye our fabrics, since that wastes a lot of water and natural dye fades after a few washes. Instead, we design our clothes with unique embroidered designs and inventive forms; only producing garments using the original colour of the organic cotton fabric. We realise that once a baby starts to walk, parents are likely looking for more colourful clothing. This is why we only produce clothes for babies under 12 months, in order to stay true to our belief in sustainability and care for the environment.
We are committed to designing and selling furniture made entirely from natural wood. There are no furniture items in our catalogue which use harsh chemicals. Our signature item, Poppy-R, is made just so. Just like the energy infused mental state of the poppy flower, a lot of young children can be a little ‘crazy’ at times. The Poppy-R chair is a thinking chair, refreshing young minds and offering their parents a little relief. The ‘R’ stands for rabbit; you can’t miss the chair’s cute design, with its back in the shape of lopsided bunny ears and a sweet smile underneath its seat.
Our jewellery is made from completely natural material - a lot of our items are silver, and some of them gold. Our signature collection uses the outline of the almond blossom, returning again to porgabé’s central philosophy. Whether it’s one of our pendants or a porgabé bangle, the minimal design is a subtle nod to Van Gogh’s beautiful flowers.
