Who Made Our Clothes?

04.27.17

It’s Fashion Revolution Week!

As a fair trade company, we want to make fashion feel good.
That’s why we’re sharing the story of Urmila Devi, who makes your Lali clothes!

Urmila works in Jaipur, India, stitching garments and managing quality control of our products.  She provides the primary income for her home, as her husband is hearing impaired. Urmila has a flexible schedule that allows her to spend time with family while still earning a living wage and contributing to her children’s education. She is a mother of 5, and her oldest daughters also work for the company during the summer when they are home from college. We are proud to say that our products benefit the lives of brave and honest women like Umrila, and that you can feel good about wearing Lali clothes!

Why Stay Inside? A Spring-time Guide to Fresh-Air-Fun!

04.21.17

Spending too much time in the studio drains us of creativity.
And spending too much time in the play room turns my little darling into a nightmare!
So here at Lali, we do our best to soak up the sun.

How do you keep your kids (and your self!) occupied in the great outdoors?

Bubbles?
Sidewalk chalk?
Building sandcastles?

One of our favorite adventures is a stroll to Sucrose, the most delightful local bakery, and our second office.

Here’s the owner’s daughter enjoying some fresh-air-fun of her own (in our Jolly Dress, of course!)

Check out their mouth-watering Instagram

From our Pi Day trip!

Have you seen us in Anthropologie?

04.18.17

As a lover of all things artisan, I’ve forever swooned over Anthropologie.
And when we started Lali,
there was always a quiet desire for us to eventually make it into their collection.
Well, we did it! 

I was in blissful disbelief when they approached our brand to collaborate
on custom baby pieces for their new Kids section.
And the whole studio is positively delighted with the end result!

In addition to our blankets and baby sun romper sets,
they’ve added these playful fringed bibs and bloomers!
Available only through Anthro, these are the cutest summer baby gifts —
and because they’re in Lali prints, you can get
matching big sister outfits  and bows though our website, too!

Thankful and Thrilled,
Kinnari

P.S. The styling with Cheerios is TOO CUTE! It appeals to all my mommy senses :)

 

 

Easter Dresses to Carry Her Through Summer

04.14.17

We’ve all experienced the taffeta nightmares
that pop up in departments stores each Spring.
Why not put your daring in something a little less crinkly and a little more fun?
Our Grace Dress is airy, sweet, and perfect
for all sorts of summer weddings and special occasions!

What’s in YOUR Easter basket?

04.12.17

What goes into a great Easter basket?

 

More than just chocolate and grass…
We asked the Lali studio what sort of loot they’d expect from the Bunny,
and here’s what we got!

 

1. What Easter outfit is complete without a bow? Our Quilted Clover Bow has a bit of silver sparkle,
and precious pastels to match all sorts of springtime outfits!
2. LUSH Cosmetics “Chick n’ Mix” bath bomb is the perfect bath time treat for all ages.
Made of gentle, natural ingredients, and this adorable Easter exclusive is not tested on animals, so you can keep the bunny safe for another year!
3.  What is an Easter basket without the iconic chocolate ears poking out the top?
Lake Champlain Chocolate’s Milk Sea Salt & Almond Bunnies
are organic AND fair trade certified! YUM.

As a fair trade company, we love supporting products that are friendly to the world and its inhabitants!
4. Who needs baskets, anyway? Do away with the wicker and trade up to this Floppy Eared Backpack from Antrhopologie that your little darling will love!
Fill it with all of the above and then continue using year-round!

 

What are your favorite Easter treats?
