I am super excited about this post as it is the first in my Small Shop Sundays series. As I delved deeper into the world of Instagram, I realized that there’s a multitude of businesses out there that are amazing and that are run by some pretty bad a** mamas! Be it clothing, blankets, shoes, bibs, bows, home decor there is a shop for everything and I found myself wanting to follow them all and questioning how I had never heard of them before. I decided that I wanted to get the word out about as many of these businesses as I could and also about the super woman mamas who created them.
One of the first amazing mompreneurs I wanted to feature is someone that I had heard about through a friend and I found her Line and the basis behind it, extremely cool. I guess you could say that this line is kind of what motivated me to start this series. So let me introduce you to Alix of JoyalTee!!
The Shop: JoyalTee
Joyaltee is a line of upcycled, handmade kids clothes. The main focus being these unbelievably cool harem pants. Whats so cool about them?? These pants are all one of kind and made from recycled t-shirts!!! The large picture from the shirt (logo, band name, picture) ends up on the childs bum which is so cute!! They are so soft and fit perfectly. The pair that I have for my 5 month old (we got the size 6-9mo and they are a perfect fit) were made from a white shirt that Alix and her husband hand dyed and they are gorgeous. The lighter or white t- shirts are turned into these beautiful tie dyed pants. They are also made with a cuff at the bottom so if they happen to be too long, you can easily roll the cuff which is what I have done meaning that my baby can wear them longer!! I don’t just love how these pants look and feel but I love that they are recycled therefore making them eco friendly and sustainable fashion.
The Creator: Alix
Alix is a WAHM with 2 beautiful babes. This company was started from her love of sewing and her desire to make her own kids cool, funky one of kind clothing. This gave her the opportunity to be creative and allowed her to stay home with her children. Alix studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and has been sewing for over 25years!!
