A limited edition collection of baby clothing and bibs has launched today for all the wee weans of Donegal.

The much loved organic baby clothing brand Rain + Conker is relaunching with a Donegal twist – introducing an innovative collaboration with Ramelton artist Laura Buchanan.

The collection celebrates some of the famous Donegal/Irish colloquial charms adorned over the organic baby clothing and bandana bibs.

From ‘wee dote’ bunting designs to art deco Donegal mountain sheep, the styles are cute, stylish and sustainably sourced.

The collection is out now on www.rainandconker.com or in Babyzone Letterkenny.
