Wonderfully Whimsical - Little Cotton Clothes
Little Cottons Clothes are back with a wonderfully whimsical collection for the Spring/Summer season. Think vintage inspired floral dresses and rompers, seersucker gingham shorts and dungarees, tulle trimmed tutus and broderie anglaise layered blouses inspired by nature and carefree Summer days.
A collection of over 20 pieces, for both babies and older children up to 8 years of age, that are perfect for the Spring / Summer season - light weight and airy, comfortable and floaty, evocative of fun-filled, warm summer days from yesteryear.
Seagrass, oat, rose and sorbet hues make up the seasons colour palette. The bespoke organic floral prints, seersucker ginghams and swiss dot cottons are the perfect weight for summer dressing and you can mix and match organic pointelle jersey tops with bloomers and shorts to create endless outfit pairings.
Highlights for me have to include the pretty Broderie Anglaise styles - the Avery and Ava Dress and Blouse together with the Coco Culottes in Oat are GORGEOUS. They are amongst our the best-selling styles this season with limited sizes remaining and some sold out completely already (sorry!)
Every item in the Little Cotton Clothes collections is designed here in England before being lovingly handmade in a handful of small, very carefully selected, factories in India and Turkey whose ethical and environmental standards align with their own. Manufacturing partners are regularly audited to ensure that the minimum working age and acceptable hours are adhered to, that employees are cared for, employment is chosen freely, and employees work in safe and hygienic conditions.
The clothes themselves are ethically made in single batches and small numbers using organic and sustainably sourced cotton whilst fabrics are printed and dyed in Oeko-Tex certified print houses to ensure that no harmful chemicals or toxins are present. Waste is also kept to an absolute minimum with any excess fabric donated to a charity in India who recycle and make clothes for local families in need whilst any unsold items or samples are donated to charity or to a local crisis centre for women who have suffered the trauma of domestic abuse.
Inspired by nature and nostalgia rather than fashion, these are clothes for children that like to adventure and explore - simple designs that are easy to wear and hardwearing enough to have fun in. Pieces that are made to be loved, worn and passed down to be loved all over again.
