The moment I first saw the incredible label Little Creative Factory I knew they were going to become a favourite. As I dug a little deeper into the philosophy behind the brand my admiration for this unique business became stronger. Those who know me well know that when it comes to my own purchases, if I spend money on an item it will be timeless, classic, good quality and often understated. Something that can be dressed up or down and will remain stylish throughout the years. That is exactly how I feel about Little Creative Factory. They don’t follow fad trends, they have their own unique yet super tasteful timeless style. I cannot imagine an era in the past or the future where these garments could not be perceived as anything other than extremely beautiful and stylish. The fabrics, the cuts, the details, everything about them is just superb. Tick number one. Then, as if gorgeous, well made, comfortable timeless wasn’t already enough, I find out that these clever people also share my passion for sustainable fabrics and eco-friendly production.
The more companies out there like Little Creative Factory, working alongside our planet instead of against it, the better off we will all be. I also love the thought, that by thinking about what we dress our children in and choosing ethical brands, we are taking a little step towards preserving their childhoods, and of course contributing to preserving their future. I’ve been passionate about sustainable / ethically produced / organic products for my children for a long time. My first child (now 11) had terrible debilitating eczema and life threatening allergies. It goes without saying poorly produced clothing and linens have never been an option for him. So it was very early into motherhood that I became interested in finding products that would be comfortable for him to wear on his sensitive skin, and also gentle on our environment. The more I learn about the fashion industry, the more difficult I find it to put my children, and my self for that matter, in mass-produced poorly made clothing that is more often than not unoriginal, (copied from a hard-working creative individual or family and re made cheaply, unethically, and in huge numbers), manufactured with no care for the comfort and health of the little bodies that will be wearing them, and even less care about environmental footprint. I’m so thrilled at how much this industry has diversified since my son was a baby. Back then my choices were limited, now if you take the time you will find amazing businesses like Little Creative Factory tucked away in many corners of the world. The more I get to know these creative individuals, families, businesses, the more I want to do my bit to support them when I can.
I hope you enjoy these snaps from our recent trip to Canada. It was the first time my baby girl ever saw snow flakes dancing down from the sky. I will never forget watching her laugh, point and squeal with delight. Her little face literally radiating with curiosity and excitement. I will forever hold these memories close to my heart. xx C
