Kids Textile Collection
We can help you with original print and pattern designs, collection development, and custom work, including trend forecasts, mood boards, and color schemes as the foundation for the project.
Our pattern and surface artworks are inspired by nature, surprising, and playful. We love to work with various media like collage, paints, watercolor, or photography and combine them digitally for the final design.
Original custom artwork.
It becomes clear at first glance at how the material is made up, and it looks great.
I think it’s great, I am absolutely thrilled, and I would like to express my thanks for this work. (Translated from German)
After a few weeks of development and bringing this print to life, not only us but many more happy customers are amazed by their new ‘Peachy Snake’ items in their wardrobe!

Life’s Principles: Unlocking Nature’s Design Secrets through Biomimicry
At the core of biomimicry lie the Life’s Principles, a set of universal design guidelines derived from the patterns and strategies found in nature. These principles serve as a framework for sustainable and regenerative solutions, offering insights into how organisms have adapted and flourished over time. By emulating these principles, we can create solutions that are efficient and resilient and in harmony with the natural world.
The new stricter requirements for sustainability reporting resulting, among others, from the European Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) demand to define and report about the most material topics of a business with a double materiality perspective. But what does this mean? Double materiality implies that not only the impact of the planet and society on a company is considered significant, but also the impact of the company on the planet and society.
ISO 26000 Guideline for social responsibility
ISO 26000 provides guidance on a wide range of social responsibility issues, including human rights, labor practices, the environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, and community involvement and development. The standard encourages organizations to take a comprehensive and integrated approach to social responsibility, rather than addressing issues in isolation.
