Aye, It's an Alpaca!
The aim of this collection of knitted garments is to celebrate versatile, tactile and textural elements to provoke curiosity and imagination of children aged 2-6. Through playful geometric patterns and three dimensional 'touchyfeely' textures, the collection embraces inspiration derived from Montessori Early years sensorial activities that stimulate learning through play. This is reflected in reversible fabrics and detachable, interchangeable pockets and playful button details. Independent dressing is suggested in garments through front fastening and details that invite for play.
Visual inspiration derives from contemporary and classic illustrators such as Morgana Wallis and Fredun Shapur and artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and Henry Matisse.
100% Scottish Borders Alpaca.
Alpaca is soft, smooth and hypoallergenic which makes it perfect for
children's wear. The happy alpacas gave us inspiration and soon got featured in the narrative of the collection.
