The Entrete Kids Story
Entrete kids is a small UK business, based on the stunning Cornish coast, that started its life in Chile. We create gorgeously unique clothing, handmade from a mix of soft, vibrant and colourful fabrics and prints. Always with an emphasis on having fun, stimulating the senses and comfort.

My name is Carol Arias Rivera, I started Entrete in Chile after graduating from university where I studied industrial design. Originally making wooden and fabric toys and furniture for children, designed to encourage play and stimulate the senses. I was Featured in a national Chilean newspaper for my innovative designs.

I later began designing clothing for children following the same ethos of stimulation and fun. My clothing became very popular and I appeared on Chilean television showcasing my designs.

I met my now husband whilst still at university, a Cornish surfer chasing the waves in Chile. We now both call Cornwall our home. Upon first moving to Cornwall I had the pleasure to work with a great group of girls at Lottie & Lysh, whom I miss dearly. I left to have my first child, the gorgeous Sophie, (the greatest design of my life!) and decided to start my Entrete Kids company in the UK as designing clothes is my real passion.

As well as our online shop, Entrete Kids can also be found in the Cornish Makers shop in the centre of Truro. Located behind the Pannier Market, just over the road from the bus station. If you are in Cornwall it's well worth a visit, featuring loads of gorgeous items handmade in Cornwall. We can also be found at some of the many pop up markets in the county. Keep an eye on my Facebook and Instagram pages for dates and locations.
