Why Sea Urchin?
With a love for the ocean and a clever twist on “urchins” as a reference to children, the Sea Urchin brand was born. While inspiration is drawn from the beauty of the ocean, its nautical inhabitants and sandy coasts, the company’s design themes unfold well beyond the sea. In addition to Ocean and Mermaid art, Woodland, and Safari themes reflect the designer’s imaginative and innovative approach to timeless and appealing designs that touch the hearts of parents and children alike.
