Bare with us with much more heading your way on the shopping horizon, our opening collections are being showcased initially as a preview of what is yet to come and we've got so much more stock on the way!
“It was during the limbic phase between pregnancy and motherhood that The Matrescence Parlour was conceived. In the latter months of my pregnancy and as an imminent first-time mother, I was searching for a consciously curated one-spot destination that specifically catered for the nebulous realms of the third and fourth trimesters.
Everything felt all rather serious, generic, and, well, 'mumsy'. I wanted to visit a fun and uplifting site that was interspersed with organic and natural products that were at the same time, luxurious and classy. I was searching for a site that predominantly supported mother-owned, female-run or outstanding craftsmanship businesses to satisfy my conscious purchasing attitude.
I found myself trudging through the plethora of retail giants maternity, newborn baby and nursing options - jugging multiple online shopping baskets from various sites - to no true satisfactory avail; as I came to realise that what I was searching for was the clubbable boutique experience and feeling that would speak directly to my matrescence. Even supporting independent baby and children’s wear shops still felt too vast in relation to the immediacy of the third trimester and the mystic forth beyond.
With my ever growing bump, I found myself yearning to place all the late pregnancy and early motherhood regalia in one convenient online shopping basket, which I could browse from the comfort of my own home. I envisioned: utility yet luxe nursing lingerie (check out our range of Six Studio), comfy and cute clothing for both mummy (Womom is our go-to!) and baby (coming soon!), kittenish gifts and of course, poop paraphernalia - That’s when I realised I’d found the seed that was The Matrescence Parlour’s niche, planted it into my mind and fostered its growth to blossom into a business.”
As you’ll see, we’ve cherry-picked a capsule collection of apparatus relating to late pregnancy and early motherhood from special businesses across the globe. As mentioned, our opening collections are a thematic preview of what is yet to come - We’re starting small and we’ll be expanding more as we grow. Plus, as we are a lifestyle business that intend to foster the motherhood-sisterhood, we’d like for you to grow with us, too, so please do stick around as our budding community is set to bloom.
