Natural History Museum launches childrenswear collaboration with John Lewis

The Natural History Museum has developed its first childrenswear collection with John Lewis, created alongside licensee Bro Global Group. For ages 3-12 years, this gender-neutral range consists of t-shirts, sweatshirts, long-sleeved tops, leggings and joggers.  

The graphic collection encourages a love of our planet, a message that is mirrored by the sustainable fabrics used to create the collection. BCI Cotton was used across the range with only water-based print techniques.

Maxine Lister, Head of Licensing at Natural History Museum, says: “It has been a real pleasure to work with the team at Bro to develop this unique partnership with John Lewis. The team have really embraced our style guides and have used the assets to great effect. Crucially, they also understand our ambition to use sustainable fabrics wherever possible and have worked with us to bring this to life and inspire the next generation to embrace nature.”

Fiona Sorge, Childrenswear Buyer at John Lewis, says: “The inspiration behind the range was to provide fun and educational clothing for kids to celebrate the environment and remind them how important it is that we care for our planet and the many animals that share it with us. We are so pleased to be launching the collection exclusively at John Lewis.”

George Birtchnell, Head of Licensing at Bro Global Group, says: “It has been a joy working with the team at the Natural History Museum and John Lewis on this range. I’m thrilled to see this fantastic collection come to life.” 

The full collection is available online now at and will be available in 12 stores.
