It’s been 10 years now since Caboo made its way into the world and it has been one big hug ever since! We wanted to celebrate reaching our milestone double digit anniversary with something truly special, introducing our first printed carriers into the range.

Hester MacAnara, Business Development Director for Close explains “ As we are now on our sixth Pop-in print story, we are well versed in exactly what a Close baby led print looks and feels like, but creating our new parent led print stories to celebrate 10 years of our award winning Caboo was something new and exciting for the extended Close team.

How we created our inspirational prints for Caboo


We have taken direction and inspiration from not only current trend lines but also the environment and the many countries in which Caboo now successfully sells. We have developed four beautiful stylistically contrasting core prints with a sensibility for sophisticated, mum led patterns, motifs and co-ordinates with, we hope, something for everyone. We have given each of our four prints a girl’s name, carefully chosen to embody the identity of the print.

Caboo Sofia

Sofia - With its soft tessellating shapes, infil graphic style and multi-tonal design we feel this print emanates a real Latin vibe whilst being both practical and highly wearable.

Caboo Olivia

Olivia – Our colourful iconographic floral repeat takes on a subtle Asian twist with its lotus shaped flowers and jade palette, we think it is complimented perfectly with the smaller ditzy co-ordinate print.

Caboo Orla

Orla - This print imbues a bold Scandi feel with its scaled back two tone palette and geometric wireframe design, the classic navy paired with this striking accent is both on trend and wearable.

Caboo Emily

Emily - This regimented and understated floral repeat gives a nod to great British values, classic by design and palette, it is beautifully contrasted with this co-ordinate perfect for any discerning English Rose.


It’s an exciting departure for Close and the beginning of our next 10 year adventure of good ideas for all you great parents out there!
