Yay! The Mabo Kids Spring 2011 collection is here.  I love watching how Emily’s design aesthetic changes with each new collection.  I also happen to know that Emily put a lot of time into finding 100% cotton for her designs, just more evidence that quality is of the utmost importance to her.  With every design under $50 I have no doubt that these looks will resonate with stylish Moms everywhere.

I am in love with Mabo, a new line of children’s clothing by local Salt Laker Emily McMaster.  When Emily had her first daughter Ruby, that’s her in the adorable tweed jumper below, she fell in love with dressing her and began making clothes for her.  She quickly realized there was a market for comfortable, quality clothing with classic lines in contemporary playful designs. Voila, Mabo was born!

All of the designs are made here in the good ol’ U.S. of A by a group of women who own a small manufacturing company up in Washington.   Recently Mabo has partnered with an organization called Global Artisans here in SLC. They train refugees to be artisans – weavers, knitters, seamstresses – and sell their goods to give them self-sufficiency and some extra income. Mabo has found a very enthusiastic audience so stay tuned for new designs in knits and cottons coming soon.
