One Girl Circus offers delightful, versatile designs you won’t find anywhere else for girls and boys. Every day is a special occasion for your little ones; they should dress the part!
I make all clothing items to order with my own two hands, and it is important to me that each piece is as beautiful on the inside as the outside, as well as being comfortable and durable for everyday adventures.
All of my clothing is washable and crafted with care, so that even the most sensitive little ones don’t feel scratchies or itchies. Seams are entirely enclosed where possible, any exposed seams are professionally finished to prevent fraying, and tags are stitched down for comfort.
Handcrafted with heirloom-quality construction means that these are the clothes you will save for your next children, or the next generation of children.
Soy has long been labeled a healthy and sustainable crop, with dozens of uses in the culinary world, but have you seen how many other uses artists and designers have found for soy in the worlds of fashion, beauty and housewares?
Shown above: soy, acrylic and wool scarf from Fluur; soy milk beauty bar from soapsrus; solid perfume (soy-based) from sweetanthem.
Soy is considered a sustainable, or renewable, crop because it is fast-growing and quickly replenished. Like most legumes, soy also helps fix nitrogen in the soil, enriching the land for use in raising other crops. The fibers left over after soybeans have been processed to make oil, soy milk or tofu can be recycled into a silky fiber used in clothes and accessories. Soy silk, as it’s called, is often blended with cotton or other fibers to create a range of fabrics and yarns.
Shown above: letterpress print printed with soy-based ink from hijirik; soy/bamboo fingerless gloves from reasdesigns; hemp, organic cotton and soy top from conscious clothing.
Soy is also used to take the place of petroleum-based substances, like oil-based inks in printed artwork, or paraffin wax in candles. Soy ink is becoming more and more popular on presses. Soy candles burn cleaner and are better for your health than traditional candles. And soy products are used as a base for many natural beauty products like soaps and perfumes.
Clare Bare: My main goal is to make people feel good about themselves. I make garments that accentuate the body, rather than cover it up, push it up, or transform it into something that it never could be. I don’t believe in clothing that is created to solve a problem- the flaw doesn’t exist until you design something for it. I feel that this is one reason why people are so unsatisfied with their bodies. You can buy a garment that will temporarily make you look “better” while you’re wearing it, but when you take it off you’re even more dissappointed than you were in the first place because you realize that it’s not the real you. My lingerie is constructed to frame your body, fit comfortably, and make you feel naturally beautiful as you should.
Short Children’s Clothing: My name is Miri and I am slowly but surly attempting to produce a clothing line for children called Short. As some of the smaller items become available I am posting them here for all to enjoy, in the hopes that some day I can finance making the more complicated items.
