March 2020: Little Indians X Antoine Peters Collection.
Little Indians celebrates its 5th anniversary with collaboration with designer Antoine Peters. According to designer Antoine, this collection is not about looking back, but about looking forward to everything the future will bring for Little Indians. And especially for the children, because they are the future. Antoine: “ The clothing is a joy to wear, but it is also a warning to all adults that we should not ruin this world for future generations.

The anniversary collection is made from upcycled leftover fabrics from 5 years of Little Indians. The entire collection is made of sustainable materials and produced in a way that is both human and environmentally friendly. Antoine: “ Our goal is to design beautiful clothing that is not thrown away, but is passed on when the children have grown out of it.

March 2021: Opening POP-UP store in the Westfield The Mall of The Netherlands.
Little Indians still works with the same producer as in the beginning. “ The fabrics, the production process and the quality are very important. This is what people will really see in the Westfield mall. It's nice to see people feeling the fabrics. Sometimes the quality and softness do not come across in the webshop. That's such a shame!
The store is temporary, but it is certainly not excluded that a new store will be opened at a different location afterwards.

August 2021: Little Indians HQ moves to Ridderkerk.

The new building is 3x as large as the previous office. Growth can be achieved here with plans for the coming years.
