Behind the Design: Ranchero Graphic Tee

On our trip through Argentina, we had the pleasure of staying at La Candelaria del Monte, a fully working estancia in the Las Pampas region of Argentina. We met the owner, a real-life South American gaucho (cowboy), named Sebastián Goñi. Sebastián shared with us what it’s like to live on an estancia, and all the work that goes into running the farm. This September, you will find many graphics and prints inspired by the estancia itself: gauchos, criollo horses, open fields and trails. Our hope is that all little citizens feel the spirit of estancia life in their own home through these designs.

Behind the Design: Bolivian Embroidery

F15_TripPic_MH_ 2647It’s all in the details… take a close look! Our August designs were inspired by the markets of La Paz, Bolivia – a city filled with beautifully embroidered clothing. Everywhere you turn, you see brightly colored shawls, skirts and sweaters. We couldn’t believe how intricate every day wear was. We also had the chance to see traditional folk costumes worn during celebrations. These pieces too were embroidered with beautiful floral designs. Take a look at some of our girl’s pieces that feature our take on Bolivian embroidery.

Baby Styles Inspired by La Paz Markets

IMG_4275The inspiration behind our sweet baby girl prints and graphics stem directly from the street markets of La Paz, Bolivia. We were inspired most by the embroidered folk costumes sold in the mercados and worn by the locals. Each garment has extraordinary detail… embroidered flowers in every color of the rainbow with gilded finishes. We wanted to bring this uniqueness back to our collection, here you’ll see how it shines through our baby girl prints. Learn more about the inspiration behind our pieces below.
