Kalm Designs

Clothing created for mothers, by mothers!


Based in Whangarei, New Zealand, Kalm is the brainchild of Karyn, with the loving support of her talented mother Merle, and Brian; Karyn’s long suffering (and understanding!) husband. As a new mum, Karyn found herself wishing for elegant, well-designed nursing wear - clothing that would allow her to conveniently and discreetly nurse her beautiful new baby while out and about; without needing to find a secluded spot! After speaking with her fellow nursing mothers, and finding the same need, Karyn decided it was time to take matters into her own hands. After much trial and error, after many late nights and early mornings, after many sketches and toiles, Kalm Designs was born.

Dedicated to offering nursing mothers stylish, unique clothing that will meet both their fashion needs and their feeding schedules; Kalm Designs offers quality, limited run designer-wear that can be worn long after nursing has finished. Kalm; and sister label K’otic, have both been created with longevity and style in mind: fashionable, functional, and absolutely unique! Have a Hoot was a natural offshoot of the Kalm range, offering handmade, fun accessories for our little treasures.
