Hello there


Hello Melba is a New Zealand based kids shop celebrating individuality, style and the joy of the handmade.

We offer one-of-a-kind pieces created from recycled, pre-loved garments. Each item is carefully crafted by hand, resulting in unique and environmentally sustainable clothing and goods for kids and mothers alike.

Our baby and grown-up skincare range was born out of our strong desire to produce sustainable, ethical products which are effective while remaining gentle and free from the nasty chemicals which are in so many of our house-hold products that are doing us real harm. 

Established by crafter, blogger and children's wear designer Rachel Thompson. With quality and sustainability in mind, each piece in the shop is timelessly and carefully made here in New Zealand.

The name Hello Melba comes from Rachel's late Grandmother, Melba Seay. "She was a lovely lady who loved cooking and crafts. I wish she was still around and that I could just pop in and say hello, and show her all the things I've been doing. I'm sure we'd have a lot to talk about!"
