Unique clothing for kids is very hard to find. We’re often at the mercy of major clothing brands, and even then the options are pretty limited. The designs can be really out of style, too; sometimes, a tee with an elephant driving a truck isn’t the best look for the first day of pre-K.
Here are just six of the reasons for why you should go handmade for your kid’s clothing.
YOUR KIDS (OR YOU!) CAN CHOOSE THE LOOK
Get them thinking about fashion while they’re young! Choose custom handmade clothing. If they’re old enough, they can choose the pattern and material they want, making the clothing much more personal and special. If they’re not old enough to choose, you can dress them. Win-win!
YOU CAN PICK THE MATERIAL THAT’S RIGHT
A lot of things can make children itchy; sometimes it’s environmental allergies, other times it’s the laundry detergent. But sometimes, it’s the clothing itself. Clothing material, especially artificial fabric, can irritate anyone with sensitive skin, but a child’s skin is noticeably more delicate.
If you have clothing that is handmade, you know exactly what kind of material you’re paying for and you’ll know your child won’t scratch themselves raw.
THE MATERIAL IS QUALITY
Handmade clothing is also known as “slow fashion”, and this is because it’s not made from pre-fab, pre-cut textiles. It’s made from carefully selected materials, with an eye for not throwing it away when it tears a seam. When going local with your clothes, you can choose material that you’ll know is organic, designer fabric. It’s also put together more solidly, so it’s less likely to rip!
ETHICALLY, IT’S GREAT!
The ethics behind clothing can be pretty dicey. A lot of clothes are made in large sweatshops through exploitative labor, from countries thousands of miles away. That’s not to mention the environmental cost to growing and dying the non-organic raw materials. But you’ll know the T&M team, and you’ll be in touch with us as we craft your handmade clothing.
YOU KNOW WHAT LOOKS BEST ON YOUR BABY
Some colors can be hard to find if they’re not part of “the look” the clothing companies are trying to sell. But you know what color looks best on your child! If you want a type of shirt, pants or even a hat, but can’t find it, have it custom-made. Choose the color and the pattern that suits your baby the best. Don’t feel restricted too just what’s on the rack!
IT’S GOING TO BE A UNIQUE LOOK!
