Back Story

Tara Baby Shop has been making handmade children's clothing since 1980 in the town of Cochin, Kerala. Back in the day Tara was also the first retail store that catered specifically to young children, newborn babies and their mums. The stores and the customers have also grown and now it is their children who wear Tara clothes. Many new mums have come back to shop with us and remember the styles that they used to have. Some even have kept the baby sheets or rompers and dresses they used as children. Our handmade smocking is still the favourite among anyone who has worn a smocking dress.

Tara Baby Shop is now available online, the clothes are just the medium for the message of empowerment. Every garment and piece of embroidery has enabled women in our self help network to earn a respectable income, educate their kids and in some cases, even build their homes!
