and the little dog laughed was launched in 2008 by Australian designer, Kylie Platt.
Kylie has a passion for fabrics and design, and particularly loves to combine textures and mediums; knits and fabrics, stretch and floral cottons, adding different layers to a piece that would otherwise be one dimensional.
Kylie draws a lot of inspiration from her own childhood, and particularly likes to create timeless pieces that evoke a sense of nostalgia. The inspiration for the labels' name comes from one of her favourite nursery rhymes, Hey Diddle Diddle.
With an initial launch of the brands' signature hand crochet blankets and knitted softie range for babies in 2010, this has evolved over time to include the ever popular and growing range of wool blend softies with knitted Australian merino wool clothing.
Each piece is designed to not only evoke a sense of nostalgia but are designed to be loved and cherished through to the next generation
