After 10 years of designing for major high street clothing brands, Nieves (known as Snow) became disenchanted with the quantity over quality approach taken by many major retailers, and the possibility that some clothes she was designing were not being produced ethically.
It was this that prompted Snow to leave the main stream and start her own business. She moved to Bath with her partner and started to create collections that were focused on simple, timeless designs made with natural materials.
For Snow it was always important that the clothes were produced ethically. Since BIBICO was launched in 2007, she has been working with fair trade groups in India and Nepal to produce her collections.
All of the cosy accessories you will find at the Bath Christmas Market are hand knitted, made from 100% soft wool and produced in a fair trade cooperative in Nepal.
BIBICO is sold in independent shops throughout the UK, online and in their own shop on Bartlett St Bath.
You can visit BIBICO at the Bath Christmas Market at chalet 140 in Abbey Gate Street.
