Small Faces Illustration celebrates moments of motherhood through watercolour and ink portraits.

A brand created by a mother and an artist painting from her home studio in London.

Braveling is a baby and children’s accessories brand for little ones aged 0 – 8 years.

A range of leggings and tights for older children up to 8 years soon followed, and the brand have also added cosy bobble beanies and longsocks to their collection of accessories.


Helen Wetz and Fiona Chow became friends over 10 years ago whilst living and working in the Big Apple.
