Here at Down By The Banks, we pride ourselves on providing truly unique items to practical & stylish parents. We offer families a place to find special and long lasting clothing and toys. Whether you’re looking for a trendy romper, a wooden play set or some cute shorts, Down By The Banks has something for all little humans to love.
We value and respect transparency, the sustainability of our earth & positive parenting.
Our brand only stocks expandable clothing, so the sizing is a little different to usual... Our homemade garments expand as your little human grows. With features like folding ankle cuffs & waistbands, adjustable shoulder snaps and hidden drawstrings our clothing is made to last three - four times longer than standard sized clothing.
If you're sick and tired of returning clothing because it just didn't fit right, or handing down so many lovely clothes you love because your bub has outgrown them, then welcome home!
If you don't quite believe us, then check out these photos of beautiful Sophie at our spring photoshoot. Thanks to the expandable features in our newly designed pinagrow, Sophie could comfortably fit into both the 1-3 year size AND the 3-6 year size! And she rocks them BOTH.
Handsome Lincoln who is 2 years old, shares this cute mustard romper with his 8 month old brother, Bowie! The boys wear size 1-3yrs and even Lincoln still has plenty of room to grow into it.
Our grow features are thanks to some incredibly high quality and super stretchy performance cotton spandex, and a little bit of engineering of sewing patterns. The original "grow with me concept" can be found all over the internet, with lots of smart businesses making use of them in their clothing. We are very proud to have taken inspiration from this amazing concept and designed many of our own unique patterns!
We are continually striving towards a minimal environmental impact. Thats why we encourage all our customers to add their carbon offset charge at the checkout. We also ship with SENDLE who promise 100% carbon neutral delivery. For every tonne of carbon dioxide Sendle releases into the air while delivering parcels, they cancel it out by supporting projects that combat climate change.
