Lookie Boo Loves Mia’s Unique

Each image is created through the Linoleum Block Print process, after printing the image, it is transferred to silkscreen and applied to the item. I love the illustrated appearance of each item. I particularly am happy that even after several washes it lacks any wear so far. This will be a great hand-me-down to Ruby when Jude outgrows it. Most of Mia Unique’s items seem versatile and gender neutral, which is always a plus in my book.

Lookie Boo Loves Dark Cycle Clothing

I often find myself lost in a sea of Etsy. If you haven’t visited Etsy before, I’m sorry in advance for all of the sleep and money you are sure to lose. Etsy is where I came across Dark Cycle Clothing for the first time. I instantly fell in love with this Anatomic Heart Tee for kids. I think it is such a fun alternative for Valentine’s Day. The shirt is hand illustrated and digitally altered, then hand screen printed with a high mesh screen, using metallic silver ink on a black 100% ring spun cotton American Apparel shirt. When the shirt arrived I was extremely satisfied with the quality and even after several washes its appearance still looks fabulous.

About Dark Cycle Clothing: Located in Tampa, Florida, Dark Cycle Clothing was founded by husband and wife team Coryn and Adam in 2009. Adam and Coryn have been playing around with designing t-shirts since they were teenagers in love bringing their late-night design creations to the local screen-printer and peddling them in batches of 20 at local punk rock shows. Eventually they bought a press of their own and began printing for local businesses in Tampa, Florida.

 The concept for Dark Cycle began with Adam thinking up quirky animal on bike designs while making his 17-mile bike ride to work. Eventually, he screenprinted the designs up on some extra t-shirts and they generated quite a bit of interest every time they were worn. After some friendly nudging from Adam for longer than Coryn cares to admit she posted the shirts up at and the next three years became a blur of chasing their little ones around, while tirelessly designing, printing, packing and shipping Dark Cycle shirts to every corner of the world.

Out To Play Kids: Fashion from Tel Aviv

I often spend a good amount of time lurking Etsy for new, fresh, independent companies that are making awesome things for little people. Out To Play jumped out at me right away. I love the quirky sense of style! I mean, who doesn’t need a Snoop Dogg shirt for their toddler? My thoughts exactly. Your children will not be disappointed when they feel how soft and comfortable their fabric is. Ruby said right away, “Oooo! Luxurioussssss!”
