DAY 31 – Sydney label MÔMES burst onto the scene in late 2013, injecting a quirky and stylish flair into the organic children’s wear market. This incredibly awesome Indian Chief tee is making its debut today, as the grand finale of the Australian T-shirt Tour! It will be available in a range of colours, in both short and long sleeved tees and onesies; in sizes to fit 0 – 5 years.
MÔMES (pronounced “mohm”) French for “little dudes” is an Australian owned and operated children’s t-shirt label owned by Chloe and Michael, Mum and Dad to two handsome “Little Dudes”.
Chloe says, “We wanted to dress our two “little dudes” in funky, cool, and unique clothing, without having to compromise on quality, fashion and above all, without breaking the bank. After hearing the same point of contention from other parents, family members, and friends, we were inspired and motivated to design and create MÔMES and the delightful, unprecedented and fun artwork found only on MÔMES”.
A product certified by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), made with 100% certified organic cotton, eco-friendly dye and vinyl, MÔMES t-shirts for “little dudes” are designed and made with respect and appreciation for the world our children live in every day.

DAY 30 – I looooooove pandas, and this new release from the super fun folks at Cheeky Chickadee is all kinds of lovely. You’ll find this print in tees, harem pants, swing tops, onesies, rompers, dresses, and headbands! Just gorgeous! Each garment is lovingly handmade in Sydney, NSW, from 100% certified organic cotton.
About Cheeky Chickadee…
Cheeky Chickadee is an organic children’s wear label specialising in animal Prints, with each item handmade by Sydney mum Eliza.
Eliza explains, “After having my first child I wanted to still stay in the fashion industry (where I have built my career), but do something that enabled me to stay home and spend time with my children. Cheeky Chickadee was born out of a love for colour, animal prints, and soft striking clothing that my children and others could enjoy. All the pieces are handmade by me from my little home studio”.
This season Cheeky Chickadee will be introducing new fabrics featuring underwater animals and reptiles.

DAY 29 – I’m super chuffed to welcome Brisbane label Luna + The Boy to KID independent, as I’m a huge fan of their work. This minimalist, yet striking, “Free to be Me” tee is bursting with character. It’s made from super soft organic cotton and with just four simple words, manages to speak volumes about childhood, families, self-expression, and wonderment of little imaginations.
About Luna + The Boy…
Luna + The Boy is a Brisbane based, family run brand for the modern mama and child. One of the creative brains behind the operation, Bree, explains, “We host strong ethical values when selecting our materials and favour simplicity in our design – using fun and positive quotes that can be worn by boy or girl and complimented by anything from leggings to a tutu.
Luna + The Boy tees are designed in house, and printed locally onto organic apparel, making them deliciously soft and breathable for their tiny wearer. With quirky dolls, dumbbells, typography and minimalistic prints, this season’s offerings are designed for the ethically minded, modern family looking to stray from traditional kids wear and decor, and into the unusual.
