Hello everyone, how is may month treating you?
Here in Stockholm we been enjoying our days off to the fullest by exploring in the nearby forest. We packed some snacks and stayed in the woods for a few hours, climbing rocks and trees, collecting perfect sticks and looking for bugs. Afterwards we took a trip the local aquarium to look at sharks and butterflies. Mr W was so excited to get to pet the Koi fish and I think it was really brave of him to stick his little hand into their pool. All in all; it was a great way to spend the day.
Climbing in the woods (or petting fish) requires comfortable clothes and Mr W loves sweats as much as the next kid. To be honest, if pants or shirts restrict his movement in any way he just won’t wear them and I think it’s a legitimate condition on kids-wear. Clothes for childrenshould be comfortable first and foremost. And they should be nice to mother nature.
Here is a great tip for you though; Swedish brand OneWeLike make organic and stylish sweats for your littles that really are comfortable (I would know because they also carry adult sizes). T-shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts and even shorts and dresses, all in grey, white or soft pastels, perfect for spring and the upcoming summer season. The prints are subtle and both styles and colors are mostly unisex. 
This year’s collection marks their fourth and for me - the forever jeans and t-shirt kind of girl - all four of them have gone straight to my heart. 
OneWeLike is environmentally aware and by making small collections, with reoccurring cuts and colors, they can use left-over fabrics as much as possible. But it’s their collaborations with top illustrators and creatives that really make their clothes shine. Like the Octopus tee that Mr W is wearing, made by talented illustrator Jennie Ekström. Or the cool cranium print by Breeze & Söderberg. Amazing! I am also waiting not so patiently for their most recent collab with Swedish designer Acne JR. It should be hitting the stores any day now. So many cool prints coming up that I really want to show you.
For those of you that want to order I’d say that the clothes are true to size with the pants being a little bit bigger than the shirts. Mr W, who is 4,5 years old and 110 cm tall, wears a size 6 in t-shirts and sweaters but a size 4 in sweatpants and shorts. OneWeLike are already available through retailers in several European countries and in Japan but they also ship worldwide through their own webshop.

MR W is wearing:
Our goal is to be a more sustainable children's clothes alternative by using left-over fabrics, timeless cuts and simple design.
