This is where we start.

Sustainable Fashion, Ethical Fashion, Slow Fashion, whatever you want to call it, it’s a work in progress.  As a start-up company, we are able to build a responsible workflow and supply chain.  We are deliberate about how and where we source all the materials that go into your kid’s eco-friendly outfit pack.  We are also focused on creating decent work and providing a living wage to all our contractors.

Why?  Because that’s the way it should be.
