The Upcycled Mini Collection For Your Kids
The collection currently boasts 4 pieces: 3 different children’s shirts (each for €45.00) with peter pan, normal or Mao collar and 1 baby bloomers (€26.00). Your kids can wear them all year round as all pieces use a blend of upcycled cotton and linen which is a breathable fabric (OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 + REACH-certified). So they won’t sweat when it’s hot but can wear the clothes with a cardigan when it’s cold. Shop the mini collection here. To spoil a surprise: two dresses and one skirt will be added to the collection soon (yaaay).
Made With Love And Care In Amsterdam
Little Boomerang produces each Little Boomerang garment in a social workshop in Amsterdam. We love that this limited collection is made locally in the most sustainable and transparent way. By having the production as close as possible to their headquarters, Little Boomerang is able to visit the manufactory at any time. This way, they can easily make quality controls as well as keep the CO2-emissions low.
About The Brand Little Boomerang
The two founders and mothers Jikke Weidema and Lizette Ariens wish to inspire people to change the way they think about fashion. “As parents, we believe in teaching our kids to truly love and care about the environment around us. Because it starts with them.” Little Boomerang also makes kidswear and accessories from your old shirts. So if you have an unworn men’s shirt at home, send it over to their workshop where it turns into a unique piece for your loved one. Consequently, no new materials are used to make a new garment and your old shirt is given a second life – a true win-win for everyone involved. Also, you should deffo check out their stylish eco-friendly backpacks made from Bugaboo REACH-certified surplus fabrics.
