An abundance of home grown craftsmanship, bold print and a sophisticated, individual use of layered colours and textures make up the essence of Caramel. It was originally conceived to challenge traditional, limited perceptions of childrenswear.
Today the brand has evolved to include a womenswear and homewares collection. There are 10 stores in 6 countries and Caramel is also sold in more than 100 independent retailers. Recent openings include Ukraine and Kuwait.
