Over the past few weeks and months, I have been working alongside my good friend and fellow blogger Belle of Petite Biet. We have been working on something close to our hearts, something that feels like birth in a way…really, it does. Not as painful- I’m certain- but with all the nerves and excitement that comes along with it.
Our new project, our new baby; Welkin NYC!
Welkin NYC is a children’s clothing line inspired by the city and made in the city! We both know how difficult it is to find well-made, eco-friendly clothing that is not only sustainable, but also unisex. By pushing the color palette boundaries, and virtually making a season-less line, we believe we have developed something that not only we love, but our fellow mamas and papas out there too. Welkin NYC was created with the idea that each piece can be passed down from sibling to sibling, boy or girl, friend to friend.
It all seems like a dream really, slightly changing careers a bit, creating something I so fully believe in, with my good friend who believed in this before I. I am so excited I feel like I need to pinch myself at times. Is this my life? Can this really happen? Can we help other parents in this way? All answers lead to yes.
But to truly make this a yes, we need the help of our supporters, readers, friends, and family. We have launched a kickstarter to help fund our first production. There are great rewards, including some art, a personal NYC tour, and a photo shoot by yours truly, oh, and piece of the line of course.
We would love support in anyway you guys! From a congrats, to a high five next time you see us on the street, donating-if you can, telling a friend, or even reposting.
If you would like to follow us on instagram its @welkinnyc and we are using the hashtag #welovewelkin if you decide to repost!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU guys for all of your support! “
