  • Our Story
  • My journey with Isleande started in 2017, inspired by an unusually hot summer in Helsinki. After struggling to find comfortable and versatile pieces for my little ones, I found myself overwhelmed by the abundance of loud prints and synthetic textures – completely unsuited for sweltering temperatures. With this in mind, I set out to create a children’s brand that celebrates my own Caribbean heritage and also reflects my love for Nordic – especially Finnish – way of life.

    A year later Isleande was founded. Starting with our signature styles the Naantali and Nagu, our mission is to create soft yet sustainable children's clothing with a focus on timeless pieces that are inspired by Nordic and Caribbean summers. Each piece is meant to be lived in and passed on – for little ones to explore the joys of recreational living, and for parents who want to pass on their way of life.

    Lots of love, Peta

    With a sigh of great relief, life is starting again. Whether it's a favourite bakery, or a corner bookshop, it's nice to see faces in the street and hear the bustle of activity. And while we're adjusting to this new normal, I'm welcoming the new season with arms wide open.

    It's shaping up to be a long summer - why not make it a great one? And while overseas travelling is off the menu, local spots and outdoor green spaces are just the ticket to get that midsummer feeling going. All those national spots you've been meaning to visit? There's no time like the present.

    To get your journey going, I've been really fortunate to collaborate with Helsinki's favourite music man Tommi Partynen. He has curated, perhaps one of the most invigorating and soulful playlists to realign your senses. His mixes are thoughtful, timely with a hint of nostalgia. And to top it off, he's such a pleasure to work with. 

    Dust off your speaker, and get that barbecue going. It's only getting better.
