About Gooseberry Pink
How belly art inspired our brand
The Gooseberry Pink story began in 2014. Founder, Laura Draper, saw a feature in which an artist had painted a pretty design on her friend’s pregnancy bump. It turned out that this type of ‘belly art’ had become a new, fashionable trend for expectant mums.
Laura was struck by what a lovely way this was for mums-to-be to celebrate their beautifully changing shape.
It occurred to her that not everyone would have a friend talented enough to create this type of belly art. She also guessed that having a painted belly is probably not the most practical thing on a day to day basis!
It did inspire her, nevertheless, to think about how she could make beautiful belly art an everyday experience for all expectants mums?
Laura’s vision was to create a collection of stylish maternity tops featuring fashionable designs and amazing artwork. At the heart of this was a simple desire to help expectant women look and feel fabulous …… because pregnancy shouldn’t mean having to wave goodbye to fashion and style.
The result was Gooseberry Pink
…a fabulous range of maternity tops giving all mums-to-be the choice to express their individuality and style.
Since those early beginnings, the Gooseberry Pink brand has taken the same ethical and design principles and created a gorgeous range of organic baby clothes.
Additionally, our new relaxed-fit, organic tops mean the Gooseberry Pink designs are no longer just the preserve of mums-to-be. See our designs now available as stunning leisure tops for all!
