Welcome to Gecko Clothing

Momentous news

This is a little, yet momentous update from the world of Gecko. Before I can update you on the new and exciting I must first take you on a journey through the mists of time….

 

Imagine timey wimey mists encircling you…

 

blog pirateImagine a sweet, innocent, cute 7 year old, now imagine me… I loved clothes! Not in the sense that I always liked to look nice or pretty, but rather in the sense of being obsessed by outfits for dolls and Guinea pigs (well one Guinea in particular by the name of Mr Macgillagody) and I loved to endlessly draw and design clothes with my best friend. A hobby that lasted for a good 10 years that Gecko Clothing saw me revisit. I’m now 32 (just) and I have the same hobby; drawing and designing clothes with my best friend, only now they are not for guinea pigs (RIP Mr Macgillagody).

 

As from today I am officially one half of a clothes designer! This was the first thing I ever remember wanting to be, so pretty exciting on many personal levels. I’m not sure how 7 year old me would have felt about the other half being a boy, my husband to be exact!

Today we commissioned our first samples of a product we have designed from fabric pattern to cuff and trim. You may have caught some of the sneaky peeks last week. I can tell you that this product is for children and the samples should be with us before the end of April!

 

Designed to Gecko goodness

 

Our 4 guides to Gecko goodness may sound pretty simple:emas fox

  1. Bright & bold unisex designs
  2. Practical & hardwearing
  3. Ethical & eco-friendly
  4. That don’t cost the earth

Which they are, but they were arrived at from extensive research and personal experience.

We believe that EVERYONE regardless of age and gender deserve clothes that are:

  1. Bright and colourful, that allow them to express themselves and stand out.
  2. Fit for their purpose, whether than be soft fabrics perfect for crawling, or robust attire for exploring.
  3. We believe that no person, animal, or our planet should suffer to bring us fashion.
  4. Lastly we hope to continually strive to bring our prices down through the economies of scale.

 

What’s next?

 

Well the samples should be with us by the end of April and then we intend to very quickly go live with a crowdfunding campaign to fund the first manufacture run of 1000 units.

This is a massive step for us and we will need every single push we have to make this.
