We’ve featured Smalls previously on pocketnannies (you can read that post here). We were impressed by their supersoft Merino wear. Now as part of ‘Wool Week 2017′. We bring you a cute collaboration with Smalls and Cissy Wears, celebrating British Wool Week 7th to 22nd October 2017. We love the slogan “In my Own Skin”.
Let’s find out more..
As part of Wool Week 2017, Smalls is launching an exclusive collaboration with cult kids retailer, Nicola Eyre of Cissy Wears, @cissywears. The new Smalls x CissyWears design is part of Cissy Wears Kids Activist Campaign, a children’s empowerment movement that aims to give kids of the UK a voice.
Smalls x CissyWears Collaboration
EJ, Co-Founder of Smalls explains: “Nicola came up with the clever slogan ‘in my own skin’ which identifies perfectly Smalls’ superfine pure Merino which acts genuinely as a second skin, regulating temperature and wicking moisture.
Nicola Eyre of Cissy Wears adds: “This month I am proud to launch my own range “Activist” – a children’s empowerment movement that aims to give kids a true voice. They are curious; they want to right the wrongs of the world. They seek answers, they want change.
This first stage of the movement is a collaboration with @lovemysmalls for British Wool Week. “(I’M OK) IN MY OWN SKIN” resonates perfectly with Smalls superfine pure Merino as next to skin layers, which gives kids extreme freedom of movement. More importantly, it recognises and celebrates the diversity in our society and teaches our children to believe in themselves, and be true to that perfectly imperfect self.” #activistbycissywears
A friend of Smalls, @spikey_mama, who has a child with sensory processing issues noticed a hidden ‘I’m OK’ within the text, so we revisited the design and feel it resonates personally now on so many levels. We couldn’t be happier.”
To create this unique design, Smalls visited and worked alongside Faering printers @faeringltd who with their incredibly innovative technical and artisanal process have created these Smalls with meaning.
The limited-edition Smalls x Cissy Wears design will be priced at £46.50 to £48.50 available in age 2 to 12 years exclusively online from 7th October onwards at www.lovemysmalls.com and at www.cissywears.com
