I am smitten with Tea. The designers at this San Francisco-based company travel the world in search of inspiration for their clothing lines for women and children. They comb streets and valleys throughout countries like Korea, West Africa, Norway, Japan, and Brazil looking for beautiful, interesting images. Then they interpret those images into fabrics and designs. Their latest collection features clothing inspired by travels throughout the Catalonia region of Spain.
Here’s an example of how Tea’s designers take images—in this case, tile mosaics from Barcelona’s Parc Güell—and transform them into chic little outfits for girls.
Isn’t that amazing? I also love these:
The hooded pullover is from Tea’s Little Citizens of the World collection. Proceeds from the collection help support the Global Fund for Children.
Lexie has an American Girl gift card to spent at the Mall of America, so I’m hoping to pop into Nordstrom to see if they carry Tea. Most of my kids’ clothing comes from Target or the Lands End outlet near our house, but I like to throw in a little something special like this now and then if I can.
