Comfort is paramount for the designers of Pitter Patters - unique stay-on bands make the shoes easy to slip on and off while holding them snugly in place.
Jenny Collins, the founder and designer of Pitter Patters has been involved in the apparel industry for around 20 years, starting as a designer and manufacturer of leather accessories and later progressing to a women's fashion range.
After the birth of her second child 17 years ago, Jenny was looking for ideas to use surplus leather she had accumulated. She designed and made a number of baby shoes that she sold to friends and by word of mouth. The footwear was an instant success and Jenny began purchasing leather in brighter colours and designing shoes to complement current fashion trends.
From these small beginnings Pitter Patter has developed over 200 different styles of baby shoes which have been consolidated into its current catalogue of 72. A key market advantage for Pitter Patter is its flexibility, which allows the company to create custom designs to match baby clothing ranges as they change from season to season.
Pitter Patters are made from the finest New Zealand leather and manufactured locally to the highest standards of craftsmanship.
As well as providing 'big comfort for tiny feet', Pitter Patters are popular because they stay on, have a non-slip sole, are safe and feature captivating designs and appealing non-toxic colours.
