Lily & Leo Organic Cotton Clothes for Kids

Let’s develop a collection of Organic Cotton Clothes for our Australian kids together!

We have searched and searched but only very few designers are creating Safe & Non-Toxic plus Beautiful Clothes for Children from the Ages of 5 years through to Teens. Now Sonja from Shift to Nature Eco Etailer will team up with specielist eco clothing designers to design and produce beautiful and desirable clothes for Children that will be made from Organic Cotton, Bamboo and other Safe and Non-Toxic Eco fabrics for our Aussie kids.

Healthy Clothes for Healthy Kids


Lily & Leo – the very beginning of a great Journey:

The name for this collection is Lily & Leo !! This initial Collection will be comfy leggings, shirts, skirts and shorts for active and contemporary growing kids. We aim to produce ethically in India where we already have experience. The Shift Label design team have experience in designing and producing ethical clothes. Beginning to manufacture a full range of clothes is expensive due to a falling Australian Dollar, the samples and the initail runs that require upfront payment of $12,000 It is possible to produce these ethical clothes with your Help – and you will love to be part of it – you can shape a collection that is more than just your investment.

The Contributions will be Specific to the Design, Manufacturing & Delivery of Initial Collection

Designing and Manufacturing garments requires an large initial outlay. Organic Cotton, Bamboo and other Eco fabrics are still expensive to make because they are not mainstream. Neither Shift to Nature nor Alas the Label have sufficient cash-flow to fund this worthwhile project – while still keeping up with our own businesses. So we are reaching out to you: Here is the estimated breakdown:

  • Initial Design and Pattern Specification of full collection for Girls & Boys from Ages 5 through to 15 = $4000 payable to the Designers
  • Sampling for Production and Project Management by Kelly & Betony: est $1000
  • First production manufacturing of collection in minimum quantities: est $12,000 (very conservative) of 1500 units

We at Shift to Nature will fund the associated costs of developing a seperate website for Lily & Leo – with all costs of photographing, marketing and sales of the collection online and to boutiques.
