Headed South for Sunshine

Celebrating the South

This year, we’ve packed our bags and set out to explore a world a little closer to home. Our trip across the US begins in the south, where sunshine rules and hospitality is a way of life. See how the culture and creativity of the region inspired our latest spring styles.

The United US: Celebrating the World Outside Our Door

Tea Collection Destination US

At Tea, curiosity is at the heart of everything we do. Twice a year, we set off for a new country in search of new inspiration and new experiences. We seek out the foreign, immersing ourselves in the customs, colors, tastes and sounds of distant cultures. We relish in the wonder and uniqueness of our discoveries, and venture to find familiar, common threads.

While it’s always exciting to explore faraway places, there’s so much beauty and diversity right here in our own backyard. This year, we’re staying close to home and getting to know our neighbors all over the US—a nation that’s as diverse in its geography as it is in its citizenry. From sea to shining sea, people are what make this place so extraordinary. Inspired by first nation peoples and immigrants from all corners of the globe, our 2018 collection celebrates the cultures and creative spirit that make us all uniquely American. This land is our land—come explore!

Be Tween: A New Exclusive Collection for Your Growing-Up Girl

Tea Tween Collection

In 2002, Emily Meyer and Leigh Rawdon embarked on an adventure to bring to the world a different kind of children’s clothing—clothing that has meaning woven into its very fibers, that inspires curiosity and connection in even the littlest of wearers. Thus Tea was born, with three pima cotton baby sweaters. Since then, Tea has grown its collection to include hundreds of globally inspired styles for little citizens sizes 0-12. But boy, do they grow fast. As moms and dads, we know it, and you’ve said it. Like you, we want nothing more than her to keep growing with Tea… and now she can, all the way up to size 16! This year, we’re expanding our collection one step further, with exclusive new styles designed for your growing-up girl.
