As an independent, black-owned company with a strong emphasis on (biologic as well as chosen) family, representation truly matters at Patta. We pride ourselves on telling stories that are missing from culture in large. So when we come across entrepreneurs in any capacity that have that same mission, we will always try to link with them and join forces.
Coloured Goodies is a small independent business from Amsterdam-Noord, run by Ellen Brudet with support by her partner Marlon. Ellen sells non-toxic afro dolls in many different hues, and also delivers custom hand-painted dolls with vitiligo, albinism & Down syndrome, making sure all children can have a companion they can relate to.
Together with Coloured Goodies, Patta has worked on a Baby Doll, first teased during the New York Popup. The Baby Doll sweat suit comes in a choice of a Forest Green or a Melange Grey colourway and was made in Amsterdam in The Refugee Company's Makerspace, upcycling deadstock Patta loopback fabric. The Baby Doll comes with actual baby VANS Slip-Ons.
We recently sat down with Coloured Goodies founder Ellen in her store in Amsterdam-Noord, to learn about why she started her business and what her vision for it is. Get Familiar with Ellen Brudet here.
The Patta x Coloured Goodies doll will be available online and in-store at Patta Amsterdam, Milan and London from Friday October 12th.
