Let me introduce you to my passion… bringing eco-friendly and environmentally sensitive products to the world of children.
A few years ago, I began to scour the globe in search of rare fibers to create quality children's clothing with a conscience. I went on quite a journey to find the best materials, the most skilled knitters and people who understood what it meant to take care of our planet and each other. I was looking to create clothing that not only felt good to buy, but that also felt soft and comfortable to wear. Comfort and quality were top priories.
I started designing clothes for children that took classic design and gave it a playful, contemporary twist. I created interchangeable styles for baby up to size 4 years, with some inventive practical touches. For example, the baby sweaters are named 'Smittens', so called because of the attached mittens that button back onto the sleeves of the sweaters.
This collection, born from these adventures and my love for children and our planet, is a clothing and accessories line of premium knitwear focusing on charming styles made from the softest and most sumptuous fibers. I handpicked materials such as the downy fleece of the arctic musk ox, Patagonian guanacos, Andean suris, and Bolivian llamas. No harsh chemical dyes are used on any of these fibers in order to protect our planet and retain the rich all-natural colors that we work so hard to find. No animals are harmed at any stage of production, for as we see it; the best yarns come from the happiest creatures.
Our gorgeous organic Peruvian Pima cotton is equally as luxurious to the touch, yet lightweight and breathable for the warmer months. Consistent with the ethos of Ox kids, the cotton collection is offered in a palette of carefully chosen shades created from low-impact dyes that both compliment baby's skin and appeal to the fashionable modern parent.
Ox also offers an exciting capsule collection of shawls and scarves for adults, because kids don't get to have all the fun. Our signature Ruffle Shawl features the same ruffle detail as the baby girl Ruffle Blanket but with a convenient button closure design and hidden pockets. An expanding collection of women’s accessories rounds out the collection, with pieces offered in both baby alpaca and organic pima cotton to compliment any outfit year round.
Once all the designs were finished, we worked carefully with selected suppliers to turn these ideas into the beautiful collection you see here. From the ideas that start in our New York studio, we work with both talented artists locally and experts abroad to create what we call Ox kids.
I'm really proud of this collection. No matter what you're looking for - winter basics, spring essentials, great party dresses or accessories for mom - you'll find something that you, and your kids, will love.
