This Mumbai Designer’s Safe & Sustainable Slow Fashion is Perfect For Your Kids!

Fashion may be all about trends and aesthetics but the real comfort lies in our “everyday” clothes. The distinction between outdoor outfits and the “home” clothes tend to blur in case of kids who dirty clothes in the blink of an eye. The life of children mostly revolves around playing making it mandatory for parents to buy durable kidswear which is also soft on delicate skin.

Akansha Bhatia, a textile designer from Mumbai is ensuring that your children get the best of cotton outfits that are trendy, durable, eco-friendly and skin-friendly! Click here to check out her amazing range and purchase the very best for your kid.

Handmade for the comfort of your little one:

Akansha’s label, Miko Lolo, is based on her research on the importance of organic cotton in the textile industry. Children who are still developing their immunity are vulnerable to diseases. At times, something as simple as the dye on their new shirt can lead to severe conditions—itches, rashes and eczema being common examples.

It is extremely important to choose authentic clothing material for your kids.

Elaborating on this, Akansha tells The Better India, “All our cotton material is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and so, we can proudly claim our authenticity. I have a team of three tailors and one person for quality check working in Mumbai. Miko Lolo does not believe in fast fashion and we hand stitch shirts, skirts, pants and dresses only in limited quantities.”

Let your child be a fashionista:

It was during her course in the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Mumbai that Akansha realised that there is no real hope for the planet in the fast fashion industry. “That industry has reserved its priorities for quantity and not quality. The overwhelming quantities of garments and accessories they produce are also damaging to the environment. I had realised early on that I didn’t want to pursue that field. This is why I have dedicated my efforts to make eco-friendly clothing for kids. It is all about slow, sustainable fashion,” the 23-year-old Mumbai entrepreneur tells TBI.

The clothes are printed in Miko Lolo’s unique style and are far from the colour-based gender categorisation that you usually see. A pop of yellow, a splash of cool blue and prints and patterns that are loved by all are iconic to the label.

Clothes full of eco-friendliness, straight from Mumbai:

Every bit of the cloth scrap is stitched into scrunchies, hair bands or bibs. This ensures that the cloth doesn’t go waste. Plus, the clothes have absolutely no metal or plastic closures. Instead, if need be, they are made using “waste” wood or coconut shells. These materials are safer for your young ones and safer for the planet too.

“We also have a ‘give back’ policy wherein you can give the garment back to us if it doesn’t fit anymore or has torn. We will clean it, recreate it and donate it to the needy. Why waste fabric when it is not actually waste?” she explains.

Another small tidbit about Miko Lolo’s products that I personally loved is their price and care tags. Made from cotton fabric scraps, they also carry seeds for you to plant, making the clothes friends of nature!

Such a thoughtful creation deserves recognition and appreciation. Your kids will love them too! Click on this link for Miko Lolo’s cotton collection.
