About Hello Melba
Your cart


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.

From special wee dresses and leggings, to baby bibs, organic, fair trade tees and kids building blocks, you’ll be sure to find something perfect for the little ones in your life.

Established by crafter, blogger and children's wear designer Rachel Thompson, the blog is full of DIY ideas, crafty adventures, food extravaganzas, style ideas and general, helpful life stuff! 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!"
