Little Green Dot is now a Craft Studio & Irish-Made Design Shop, it grew from a vision to make beautiful, quality baby gifts and toys, in a traditional and ethical way. The owner and maker, Lisa Tonge and her new team of very talented designers, create unique and different cloths for babies and children, gifts that will be cherished now and in the future. Little Green Dot makes a beautiful range of bibs, baby blankets, organic hats and gift sets, personalised ‘sibling star’ gifts, bespoke dolls and elephants and other treasures. They also run baby shower craft sessions and invite people to visit them in their Shop in Clonakilty.
Little Green Dot was launched in October 2013 to a very positive response. They are regularly featured in local and national press and were even featured on TV3’s Ireland AM in July 2016. In 2014 and 2016, Little Green Dot was shortlisted in in the Maternity & Infant Awards in two categories, trendy tots brand and best toddler/baby toy. The Little Green Dot has continued to grow and they have moved premises and location to Upstairs @ Clonakilty Community Arts Centre. They are registered with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and Cork Craft and Design.
Made lovingly by hand in Ireland
Everything that they make follows age-old craft traditions in Ireland. Often in the past, these baby or child items were made by a loving hand, kept and passed on through the generations. All that is made at Little Green Dot is crafted with this in mind.
Putting the green in the dot:
They make toys and gifts that people can feel good about. You can rest easy with the knowledge that Little Green Dot Craft Studio try to act ethically in all their work. The gifts do not cost the earth and are fair to the people that make them.
Safety tested for peace of mind:
All Little Green Dot Craft Studio toys carry the CE mark. This means they have been safety tested so you can be sure that each toy is safe for your little person and you don’t need to worry. We also use the same materials in our baby wraps and blankets and top quality organic fabrics so you can have peace of mind about them too.
Due to repeated requests, Little Green Dot launched a sister brand in 2016; Little Hound. Little Hound is a range of Stylish Irish Neckerchiefs for your Little Hound. These are handmade in our studio using 100% cotton in dog-friendly prints and are sure to set tails wagging. They can also be personalised too.
