Lillie & Me
Lillie & Me is a Cape Town based manufacturer of beautiful handmade genuine leather kiddies and mommy apparel.
You just have to browse through her Facebook page to fall in love with the teeny tine leather shoes and when you just think you’ve seen it all, she comes up with practical solutions to outings with your little one. I absolutely love the Diaper Clutch Bag – It’s got space for: a Full pack of wipes, 2 Diapers, Bum cream AND You can pop in your phone, keys and cash! This is perfect for a no nonsense mommy!
My days of worrying about diapers are long gone, but the genuine leather backpack with adjustable straps is my favourite at the moment. It is complete with a waterproof lining, perfect for your little girl or boy’s lunch box and extra clothing. The best part is that it is personalised with your child’s name on it.
So much care and love go into every design, including bibs and breastfeeding covers to mention a few of her products. To me this is exactly what I value about slow fashion, unique and not mass produced!
Hop on over to Lillie & Me to see what I am on about.
I have been very interested in slow fashion for a while now, whether it be buying previously loved clothing or locally produced. Supporting our local manufacturers creates opportunities for many women wanting to build on their creativity and entrepreneurship. There is a wealth of choices and I always look at the story behind the story. Mishka and I love Guss & Shilo’s approach and clothing range. With that, please let me introduce you to two lovely ladies with a wonderful playful vision for slow fashion:

ABOUT GUSS AND SHILO
We wanted to create a collection of children clothing that inspires a life lived outside. In today’s modern world, it’s easy to get caught up in the immediate things, but we remember growing up on bicycles, swinging from trees and running wild. Which are exactly the feeling we wanted to replicate in our clothing; simple, beautiful, and adventurous clothing that reminds you of country living and a childhood, rich in memories.
