A baby clothing brand under new ownership by sisters
A baby clothing brand that sells a mixture of its own products and those from well known UK labels has come under new ownership.

The Cotswold Baby Co. has been acquired by sisters, Katy Peters and Lucy Hawkins and marks the pairs first venture into business.

The sisters, based in Devon, explained their reasons for stepping into business and hope their bravery will inspire other entrepreneurial women: 

“I have always been interested in fashion, with my dream as a teenager being to be a fashion buyer. Having become a mother in January this year, the stars have aligned, and I get to pursue both my interests with CBC. It was quite scary to pay out a significant sum to take over the business, but we are confident in our vision for the future” Katy Peters – Cotswold Baby Co. 

Lucy, until very recently was a career estate agent and had already experienced the rush of starting a new business having quit her job at an established agency to join a brand-new start-up. That venture was amazingly successful, but Lucy felt her long-term interests were not in estate agency. 

“Estate agency has given me a solid career and the ability to look after my family, but I felt it was time for something new and when I found out Katy was interested in Cotswold Baby Co. I was keen to join. I think it is so important to pursue your interests and I really can’t wait to get stuck into CBC and to work alongside my sister.” Lucy Hawkins – Cotswold Baby Co. 

Cotswold Baby Co. was founded in 2017 by two best friends based in the Cotswolds. It specialises in country and farm animal themed clothing from UK brands. The founders sold the business as they felt they had taken it as far as they could and life was taking one of the pair away from the UK to a new adventure in Bahrain.

They were delighted to find Katy and Lucy to take the business on, knowing that the business was sure to go from ‘strength to strength’ under their stewardship. 

The sisters plans over the coming months include expanding their UK manufacturing, exporting to the EU and USA and expanding the wholesale side of the business.
