Mini Magpie up-cycles clothes, transforming pre-loved items into fun, practical, colourful and creative kids clothes. It was founded with two objectives in mind: To help the environment and at the same time clothe children in colourful, quality cashmere and wool.
The uni-sex collections are distinctive and include pom poms, shoulder guards, braces, sequins and patches. All the fabrics are at least 80% natural fiber and everything is hand made in Hackney, London.
Mini Magpie run workshops (for all levels) on how to up-cycle an old jumper or T-shirt into something for your kids. They also take commissions from customer's old jumpers - which could make a great gift.
Mini Magpie is such a fun, refreshing brand, the clothes are practical, bold and exciting - the kind of things that kids might imagine up themselves. They are unique and creative and i am looking forward to watching this colourful brand grow.
Mini Magpie was founded by extremely talented and creative mother of two Kimberly.
