Electropura: Upcycled Clothing for Children {Giveaway}

ElectropuraElectropura is all about eco-friendly, fashion-forward clothing for little ones.  Fashion Designer (and mom) Lynn van Gastel is behind Electropura’s unique upcycled designs.  She recycles existing materials and upcycle interesting textiles to create functional and one-of-a-kind pieces for toddlers and children from ages 0 to 5.

Electropura’s pieces range from crossover onesies to shirts and dresses. Pieces for both girls and boys that are made to stand up to wash cycles and active kids use.

I really like the idea of upcycled clothing (old becomes new again) and the fact that she can also take your own used clothes to create a custom piece of clothing for your little one.

Something I love about her designs is that they are truly unique and one of a kind and they are very fashionable and modern.  We received a short sleeve tee from the Spring 2012 collection and it is lovely.

Electropura

There is something really exciting about knowing that you will never see the exact same tee anywhere else.

The tee’s design is super creative and the material is high quality.  It looks great wash after wash and the colors stay vibrant and bright.

I stand behind companies that care about the planet and that are doing something about it.  Electropura is one of them and I recommend you visit their website to check out their new Superheroes 2012 Spring collection. You can purchase directly from them or you can visit their “where to buy” page to find a place that carries their line near you!

Electropura

Win it: One lucky reader from US/CAN will win a pair of Electropura knickers (boy or girl).  These are adorable and perfect for the next stage after potty training!  Enter the giveaway via Rafflecopter below.
