My girls both really love dresses. I came across Kallio on Kickstarter and couldn’t wait to receive the dresses from them to review. Kallio was recently featured on Kickstarter and was trying to raise $30,000 in order to open their first workshop! Congrats to Kallio who made their goal, how exciting!
“The space will fulfill 3 exciting roles:
1) KALLIO HQ: Work/SHOP will be the new home and HQ of Kallio, so we can continue to grow and create our conscious kidswear line for you.
2) DESIGNER POP-UPS: The space will also be home to other like-minded brands through monthly pop-ups, bringing you an exciting and ever-changing array of beautiful and thoughtfully designed apparel, jewelry, homewares, and more.
3) WORKSHOP SERIES: We’re launching an exciting workshop series where artists and designers will teach simple and sustainable design techniques — from urban gardening to re-imagining vintage to food styling and photography. We’re bringing it to you!
The studio needs some love before we can open for business this holiday season.
With your support, we will be able to transform this raw space with a new ceiling, natural floors and warm lighting. We’re also designing the space so it’s modular and multi-functional to easily accommodate the Kallio studio, the designer pop-up shops, and workshop series.” (Kallio Kickstarter Campaign)
I fell in love with the simplicity and easiness of their dresses & clothing. My girls love to be fancy but mostly they love being girly girls and Leah really loves to be fashionable. The Kallio dresses we received are now the girls favorites! Leah loves to wear hers because she knows how comfortable she feels in it. I love the concept of taking a man’s shirt and turning it into a cute dress which is what the girls dresses were made from!
Kallio has a really cute selection of clothing for babies, girls and boys! With each dress their are several patterns and styles to choose from to and each is different.
“The Long Sleeve Tunic has been made from cozy men’s flannel shirtings. Each item is one-of-a-kind as the details vary from one to the next. Available in bright tartans and fall colors. This is the perfect Fall dress and can be worn layered all through the Winter. 100% Reclaimed Materials 100% Made in USA” (Kallio webiste)
I love that Kallio takes shirts that otherwise might be thrown away and turns them into something fun and creative that kids can enjoy wearing!
“They say the clothes make the (wo)man but what happens to those clothes when they are no longer cool or just don’t fit anymore? Most people don’t know that the textile industry is one of the most wasteful industries in the world. A whopping 85% of textile waste ends up in landfills, which basically means you could re-create the Rocky mountains with perfectly good clothes, what a waste. And what a floordrobe!
