Let's start with some basic arithmetic:
Fashion forward kids' clothes + Functional and thoughtful design + Made in Seattle = Holt and Lulu.
Dear Reader, I am THRILLED to finally be able to share Holt & Lulu with you. Owner Angie Anderson and I met a few years ago through mutual friends and I've been a fan of Angie and the brand ever since. The company makes high quality fashion-forward kids' clothes that you won't find anywhere else. She plays with gender roles, uses a variety of high quality fabrics ranging from faux leather to fleece, and as a parent herself, Angie understands what should be the ultimate goal of all children's fashion — for their clothes to be fashionable AND functional.
Top 5 Reasons for You to be a Fan Too.
Every piece is machine washable with a minimum of buttons, and no zippers. Clothes should be cool while making sure that kids "are able to play easily," says Angie.
2. Locally made
That's right. From concept to design to manufacturing, it all takes place right here.
3. High quality
Pictures really don't tell the entire story of these clothes. The pieces are beautifully made and Angie checks each and every one before they head out to retailers around the world.
When my first niece was born 14 years ago, I started on the hunt for functional, fashionable kids clothes that weren't always simply pink for girls or blue for boys. It's not easy. Holt & Lulu incorporates other colors (gasp!) and plays, for instance, with the idea that pink (like in pre-19th century society) can also be for boys. They reference current trends while still being kid-appropriate.
5. You can win a piece!
The quickest way to become a true fan of the brand? Try it out. Holt & Lulu sells wholesale directly to boutiques, or you can purchase individual pieces online. Even better, Holt and Lulu is offering a 20% discount to Poplin readers, but unfortunately this discount cannot be applied online.
