Alba started with the birth of a Family, with a Mother wanting to dress her baby girl in unique design and soft organic material and outfits designed to play.
Designer Majken Ova Banke could not find the clothes she wanted for her new daughter. She wanted vibrant colours, flexible design and high quality materials. So she made it herself. With a background in architecture and passionate motherly love, she started her journey into a world unknown: the fashion industry. One thing quickly took centre point in the company’s approach to this complex industry: to be highly aware of our responsibility in designing and producing kid’s clothes.

Little Green Radicals
London based Little Green Radicals started life in 2005, with a passion for fair trade and a quirky sense of humour. While doing one of the many cold wet market days selling organic and fair trade t-shirts, their founder Nick, came up with 6 humorous slogans for kids t-shirts including ‘stop the wailing’ and ‘wind farm’
Not long after their launch Little Green Radicals was in a select group of brands to be first in the UK to get fair trade certification for cotton. And of course, they were and always have been organic too. Their farmers, based in India, get a guaranteed price for their cotton, and they don’t use nasty pesticides. The factories they work with look after their employees, who get fair wages, maternity leave, and many of the other things you would expect decent factories.
