We have been long time fans of Tze Ching Yeung at Jake + Maya Kids and her goal for sustainable materials, designs and products. The newly launched metamorphosis collection is designed and produced with the intent of creating zero waste, using certified organic cotton and printed using water-based inks and natural dyes. All their garments are produced by social enterprises and ethical production partners in UK. On top of that, Tze recognised that children grow out of their clothing fast, so have included adjustable features and, and this is pure genius, extension packs to extend the life of each item. Items are unisex and age-sizing has been abandoned age-sizing for a simple S, M, L in each garment. Kitty and Finn have never worn age sized clothes – they’re both tall kids, and I have a friend with an almost 3 year old who easily fits in to 18month old clothes – so this makes such sense!
Anyway, the collection is full of beautiful clothing – unique prints, details and all works well with each other. My top picks include the London Hoodie (£57), an Organic brushed cotton sweatshirt hoodie with side zip closure and extra long cuffs, to accommodate growth spurts. The Bailey trousers (£33) which are organic jersey harem style trousers with adjustable waistband and belt. They come with an extra leg length to allow for growth and a mending pack included for small holes and tears and Lola’s already requested the Alexis T-Shirt (£24)- which I know Lu’s bug loving crew will also be after!
