  • 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

    “When I took a bite, it was one of the greatest moments in my life."

    I don't usually post about food. Not because I find it unimportant, but rather, I don't want it to seem forced. In this visual medium, I try to present the best parts of my mood, the environment, the beauty of where I am at this exact moment. Keeping things as interesting and authentic to my nature. It's the reason why I may post three stories in a day, and go a whole week without a single peep. What you see, is 100% what you'll get. Also I like floral language - it brings me joy always and pardon the indulgence.

    So you can imagine just how extraordinary this story has to be, for me to share it with you today. I'm an immense fan of Chef's Table, and to my great delight this season does not disappoint. I started with an exploration into Rosalia Chay Chuc homage to her Mayan roots and her mouthwatering barbecue, known as "cochinita". The above quote was from Ricardo Munoz when he first tasted it. Can you imagine just how good this had to be, for this chef - who has for the greater part of his life, lived good food - to say such a thing? This gives me life. Everytime. Whenever you get a moment, please watch on Neftlix. Even from a distance, it's impossible not to appreciate her talent.
