1+ in the family

This is a brand I like (Catalan, Spanish once again!). Black on babies is something that had to grow on me, but I'm starting to like it more and more. What I like especially about this collection are the designs. That little button on that shirt!

One of the things that are important to me in designing a clothing label, is that it's items are sustainable. I'm not in it for changing the world - let's be realistic: I'm just another mother with an urge to create something nice ;) - but I sure do not want to contribute to making it worse either.

I did some research and found out the highest standard for items is being GOTS certified. A little background:

'The aim of the Global Organic Textile standard is to define world-wide recognised requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
Textile processors and manufacturers are enabled to export their organic fabrics and garments with one certification accepted in all major markets.'

I have tried my best to get a GOTS certification for my labels, but since I'm just starting up and want my clothing to be affordable, GOTS is not a realistic aim just yet. For now, about 50% of the Finch + Agnes' first collection will be made from bio cotton. Hopefully - given there is a future for Finch + Agnes - new collections will come closer to achieving this goal.

All the more respect for brands like Mini Rodini, Nosweet and Popupshop that offer GOTS certified clothing!

care labels and stuff

As I've been telling you here, I'm starting a kids' clothing label: Finch + Agnes!

It's exciting, nervewrecking, thrilling, all at the same time. Like a rollercoaster, my learning curve is very steep. My dear friend R - we have been whatsapping daily these past six months :) - fortunately has lots of experience in the field. Otherwise I would have quit early on.

It's definitely a different business from what I'm used to. There's negotiating, communicating, being véry detailistic when it comes to design, communicating some more, being a pain in the *** of the supplier, just to make sure he's still on your collection. It's a whole new ball game, that's for sure.

But the results are getting there. Take a look at the Finch + Agnes care labels

Surreal how ideas that have been in the back of my mind for ages, now come to life. And funny how happy one can be with care labels!

Stay tuned for more news about this exciting journey I'm taking.
