How Baby Trenz Designer Moses Baskets started.
Baby Trenz was established in 2007 and has come a long way since starting as a hobby in 2005. In 2005 Karen and Russell Newton's first grandson (Braedyn), were trying to find a suitable first bed for him, found there was not a lot of options in New Zealand, they were after something Natural, Portable, Breathable and Safe but at the same time wanted something with a bit of class. After searching far and wide decided that only a Moses basket fitted all the requirements.
Why a Moses Basket, because a Moses Basket is natural, portable, breathable and safe, but could not find a quality Moses Basket in New Zealand anywhere, Karen ended up purchasing a second hand basket for him, and having experience in design, set about making a set of linen for it. From there things just grew and everyone wanted one. Karen started making them for friends and family as a hobby and found you can’t beat a basket for the perfect first bed and really they are one of the most useful items to make life with a newborn easier. So they set about finding a manufacturer to make a top quality basket to their specifications. Over time they have sourced some gorgeous fabrics and now we make an exclusive range of designer linen to finish the Moses Baskets.
