Charabia Paris was created back in 1992 with by a dynamic meeting between a French and a Swedish duo from the world of advertisement with the world of fashion. Lena Henriksson-Barenton was a young Swedish stylist for woman’s fashions, from the houses of Lanvin and Chantal Thomass.
Charabia’s brand ethos is based on natural and ecologically based clothes for children.
Eric Barenton was a Parisian advertising agent with marketing experience with big agencies like Havas, DDB Needman. Together they launched the brand Charabia Paris, as a newborn gift collection.
Charabia dresses are designed with amazing detailing and quality making the perfect dresses for every special occasion from size 3-16.
