COLOURFUL, COMFY AND ETHICAL KIDS CLOTHES
About Magpie & Me
“Why blend in when you were born to stand out”
Hi, I’m Charlotte and I make all these lovely colourful clothes. I studied textile design at university and have a love for unique and colourful prints. It was always a dream of mine to make clothes for my children, as my mum did for me growing up. So with my love of print, sewing, little people and the planet, the idea for Magpie & Me was born.
When my daughter was little she used to collect all the pretty bright and sparkly things from around the house. She would hoard them in a nest of precious bits. I called her “my little magpie” so when I started making clothes I knew that I wanted my business to be called Magpie & Me, and now I have a “mini magpie” too.
M&M clothes are comfortable and easy to wear, so they don’t hinder movement and play, they are all about having fun and exploring in. I select the prints very carefully and always have in mind what designs children would love to wear, I design some of the prints too.
The fabrics i use are GOTS Organic or Okeo-tex 100 standard and have been tested for harmful chemicals, making them kinder on the planet and better for your little ones.
M&M is a sustainable and handmade brand, with an ethical and environmental focus. I use recyclable packaging and I make reusable wipes, snoods, pants and headbands out of my scrap fabrics, so there is little left over to recycle.
It’s all in the detail, even down the the thread I sew them in, every item has a beautiful rainbow edging to add a little bit of M&M magic ✨. So much attention, love and thought goes into making these special clothes for your lovely little ones. I hope you like them as much as I love making them for you.
