Our Story

Caramelo Kids is a family-run business based in Essex. Our history started in 1976 supplying fabrics in East London, near Shoreditch. We then developed a collection of girl’s party dresses under the brand Couche Tot (trading as Peppermint Phoenix Ltd) and launched our first clothing collection in 1986 at the NEC.

Over the past thirty years our client base grew along with our product range and have evolved into a global company supplying customers from Essex to Japan.

Our new brand – Caramelo Kids

We have recently had a restructure of the company leading to a new management team which has led to the birth of our new brand Caramelo Kids. With the same designer of Couche Tot, the Caramelo Kids collections now include a wide range of items including:

– Accessories

– Layette sets

– 100% cotton knitted baby wear

– Traditional Spanish style dress and jampant sets

– Exclusively designed coats and jackets,

– Boys suits and christening wear

– Footwear

We are continuously designing new timeless collections seasonally, and in this way we keep up with changes in the industry and demand of our customers (and THEIR customers!)


We look forward to continuing to create beautiful clothing for future generations and would like to thank all of our loyal customers for your past, present and future business and welcome all our customers to the Caramelo Family!
