Summer Style!

 There is nothing like African and Indian designed clothing to bring out the colors of summer. I especially love to see the beautiful colors in children's clothing that just shout welcome summer!

Masala Baby -   is inspired by Indian roots: delicious curries, authentic spices, Bollywood movies, celebratory marigold flowers, traditional Indian roses, pink stone architectural details, and the colors of the chaotic bazaars all blending together to create a unique palette. The use of color in India in brightly painted streets, palace mosaics, the vivid hues of the women's sarees, the variety of spices used in Indian cooking and the exuberance of the Indian festivals, the love of color celebrated in every facet of Indian daily life. India's textile tradition is a kaleidoscope of colors and cultures. This inspiration has given birth to Masala Baby's numerous unique collections.

Grace + Ellie - brings African art and culture to modern children's fashion. The brand combines African culture and classic designs to create collections that are unique, colorful, fun, and beautifully distinctive.

Global Mamas- is A Fair Trade Organization benefiting the women of Ghana. Women create clothing and crafts for an international market. “Fair trade” means that an equitable partnership exists between producers of goods in developing countries and retailers in developed countries.

Lemlem - Supermodel / actress Liya Kebede started Lemlem, which means to flourish or bloom in Amharic, as a way to preserve the ancient art of Ethiopian weaving.

 Chakra Design Studio - Based in Dallas, TX, CHAKRA for children offers modern eco-friendly clothing, accessories, and gifts for kids and babies inspired by ancient Indian printing techniques and hand sewn from vegetable-dyed, hand block printed 100% cotton fabrics. With the launch of Chakra Design Studio, its founders find balance in blending the traditional with the modern.
