Rikshaw Design founder and designer Catherine Benson got the idea for her children’s clothing label after traveling to India and deriving inspiration from the block-printing techniques she discovered there. A seasoned traveler and former visual merchandiser for Ralph Lauren and Pottery Barn, Benson presents an adorably boho collection of crib bedding and baby and kids’ clothes featuring prints and designs you won’t find anywhere else. In addition to sweet sundresses, nautical-themed bloomer sets and sunhats, and tiny rompers, Rikshaw offers many different variations of its signature garment, the kurta: a traditional shirt worn in India, Sri Lanka, and other countries. You’re bound to fall in love with Rikshaw Design’s playful and distinctive clothing.
When Rikshaw Design founder and designer Catherine Fitzsimmons traveled to India, she fell in love with the block-printing technique that's so popular there — and it's this mark that makes her clothing so unique. When we spotted the bohemian-inspired bloomers, sundresses, and tops, we knew we just had to feature them on Gilt ... they weren't like anything else we'd seen before. Loving all the vibrant hues!
