This Mother’s Day, Little Scooch is tipping its hat to all the wonderful hardworking mamas out there with a special range of grown-up lady tees.
Little Scooch celebrates all that’s great about being a kid, whether she’s racing scooters at the park, or he’s demanding to spend every weekend at the dinosaur museum.
Run out of a wee garage studio in Melbourne, Little Scooch is a one-woman show run by Meg, AKA Little Scooch herself. She designs every print, draws it, cuts it and screenprints it with water-based inks on the loveliest quality cotton tees, sweatshirts and onesies. All the base garments are ethically produced by sweat-shop free manufacturers and each piece has the charming quirks of a one-off, hand-made item. Little Scooch is truly a labour of love and care.
With Mother’s Day coming, Little Scooch has released a special range of printed tees called For All Mumkind. From the mouth of the designer herself, “it’s about mamas supporting mamas… a chest bump to the sisterhood to say ‘we’ve got this’ even if we’re all secretly winging it.”
More than just a statement of solidarity, $5 from the sale of each For All Mumkind tee will go to charities that support mothers: the Luke Batty Foundation, St Kilda Mums, Hamlin Fistula and RSPCA Set a Sister Free campaign.
The For All Mumkind tees ($40) are lovely and easy to wear with their capped sleeves, flattering scoop necks and curved hems. True to Little Scooch’s retro 80s vibe, the tees are printed with beautiful typography, and things like rainbows, or hearts, or an ode to the rocket fuel of all mums: the mighty takeaway coffee. They come in basic grey or mint green marle which won’t quite hide the fact that your toddler threw porridge at you this morning, but it’ll camouflage it until you can get a load of washing done.
Because we’re mums and can’t resist a cute little something for our wee ones, Little Scooch has plenty of choice for babies and kids. The designs are customisable so you could have a Jack Man tee with a bat mask ($35) a Go Go Hunter flamingo onesie ($35) or a digger sweatshirt printed with the words “Charlie digs life” ($45).
Each top is personalised with a choice of seven ink colours and the future wearer’s name. Design-wise, seven letter or fewer names are ideal, but if you want a onesie that reads Henrietta von Snugglycheeks, who are we to say what looks best?
Because each order is hand-made and custom, it normally takes three weeks plus shipping to get your Little Scooch garment, but the For All Mumkind tees are printed and ready to ship within a day of ordering. Shipping in Australia is free.
