Here’s an intriguing concept – pre-loved and vintage pieces re-made and given new life as children’s clothing. It’s clothing that spans generations.
Kallio was founded a couple of years ago in New York, with a vision to create a children’s fashion brand that’s fun, stylish and little left of centre. It’s clothing that children can play in, but isn’t harsh on the environment in terms of its creation.
The clothing in the Kallio range is made from other clothing like men’s shirts, which are re-sewn in ethical factories and given a whole new life. It’s a great lesson in the simple concept of reuse, reduce, recycle.
The men’s shirts tend to lend themselves perfectly into being refashioned into girls’ dresses, which start at US$68.
There’s a lovely range of clothing for babies, including the adorable Kimono jacket and bloomer set for US$88.
The boys’ hooded shirts look great, and are obviously popular as they’re currently sold out. Kallio ships to Australia, and the available items are a moving fashion feast, depending on what recyclable clothing is available.
