Gorgeous Special Gifts & Memories

Duchess and Duke

Traditional baby apparel with a modern twist. Duchess and Duke was originally supposed to be Baby Duke. When my grandson was on his way, we very soon realised that the variety of boys clothing was minimal. That made us realise that there is a desperate need for baby boys clothing, and hence the idea to open an online boutique came about. Our aim is for it to be an enjoyable experience for Moms, Grannies, Aunties and all those who want their special bundle of joy to be dressed like babies used to be dressed.

Back to Basics! We chose to add a Duchess for our little Duke. We would love your experience with us to be an enjoyable one, where you can shop at your leisure.

Our D & D clothing is made from soft cotton fabric and special attention is considered, making seams gentle on baby’s skin. Fastenings are plastic to prevent baby from burning or digging into their skin, our leggings and pants have a soft ribbed waistband and babygros and t-shirts have front or envelope neck-openings for easy dressing.
