- Our Story
Little Fishkopp was launched in 2015 as a German-inspired organic kids clothing brand. Because we are committed to making eco-friendly clothing that lasts, all of our products are crafted from 100% certified organic cotton. In addition to being free of harmful substances, our cotton is super soft, so it feels great on the skin and is comfortable and cozy for kids. We believe that safe and functional products can still be fun and stylish. We are passionate about our unique, Nordic designs with bright and bold colors. All this adds up to high-quality products that give parents peace of mind and that kids love to wear.
So you may be asking yourself, “What is a Fishkopp?” It’s a German word that literally translates into “fish head.” But Fishkopp also is German slang that describes someone from the North Sea coastal region, and therefore a kid would be a Little Fishkopp. Our name reflects our Nordic style and our commitment to providing quality products for kids everywhere.
It probably comes as no surprise that our company was started by a Fishkopp. Uta Preston grew up in northern Germany and spent many summers at the North Sea. She moved to the United States two decades ago and now has two little Fishköppe of her own. She travels frequently to Germany — maintaining the connection to her past and ensuring her kids know the wider world. Those travels inspire Uta, but she also finds motivation and energy in a good cup of coffee, an early morning run, good food with family and friends and expanding her own knowledge of the world’s wonders.
