Here at Babi Pur we’re were really excited when we heard about a like minded local company who are doing great things! Gecko Clothing create bright and beautiful clothing for babies and children that are ethically produced and eco friendly. Gecko Clothing have great plans to create a super range of funky dungarees and pants for babies and children, ignoring old fashioned gender stereotypes. To get this fab new brand idea off the ground Gecko clothing are running crowdfunding campaign, yes we know there are lots of crowdfunding campaigns around but this one really stands out and is definitely worth a look. We asked Ema the founder of Gecko to write a bit about her campaign, see below….
Hello Babi Pur followers!
We have a crowdfunding campaign to create some very funky, colourful, ethical and eco-friendly, unisex dungarees and hopefully trousers: We are fed up with the gender stereotyping of our children. We believe what would be really progressive to gender equality would be to remove the segregating of what’s ‘girls’ and what’s ‘boys’ and have things that are for kids. Allow our children to make choices based on what make them happy, what brings them joy, to wear and to play with the things they love. Rather than be dictated to based on outdated ideals of what it is to be a girls and a boy. We want to liberate our little people! Check us out and support us if you can:
Every pledge makes a difference and we have a great range of rewards to say thank you for your support too. Ever backer will get an opportunity to help us create the dungarees as shown in our handy little infographic here: If you want to read more about why we are so passionate about unisex clothing you can check my article out here in the Huffington Post
